University of Exeter
Falmouth University College


Sustainability is a main priority for us and a theme that runs through all of our departments and day to day work across campus. As part of the University of Exeter and Falmouth University declaring a climate and ecological emergency in 2019, our services and operations are key to achieving their goals and objectives.

Our key sustainability themes include energy, waste, transport, biodiversity, procurement and commercial operations. All of these themes have a carbon and ecological impact, we are therefore committed to achieving net zero carbon scope 1, 2 & 3 emissions before 2050.

Ultimately, we want to create a positive and proactive culture on campus where all staff and students feel empowered to take sustainable action and learn about how our campuses are working towards our shared sustainability targets.

You can help us make our campuses more sustainable. For instance, by making sure the correct recycling goes into the correct bin. This reduces the amount of waste sent to the incinerator (waste for energy). Click here for some more tips on how to help be more sustainable on our campuses.
