Leading on global corporate sustainability

As an active member of the UN Global Compact we're part of the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. This is a global movement connecting businesses and organisations to universal principles on human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.

We’re one of just a handful of UK universities working alongside more than 9,500 companies and institutions across 160 countries putting the principles of the UN Global Compact into action to make our strategies and operations more sustainable.

We’re committed to embracing, supporting and enacting within our sphere of influence the UN Global Compact’s core values in the areas of human rights, labour standards, the environment and anti-corruption.
