Keele among the best universities in the world for sustainability

Keele has again been scored among the top 25 out of 800 universities in the world for sustainability.

The Green Metric Rankings looked at things like waste, water, transportation and energy.

This excellent performance comes as Keele embarks on its next big sustainability initiative, playing a crucial role in the HyDeploy project to trial new ways of incorporating hydrogen into the UK’s energy network to reduce carbon emissions. 

Last year, Keele also became one of the first UK universities to declare a ‘climate emergency’, and announced its climate emergency target to be carbon neutral by 2030.

Professor Mark Ormerod, Deputy Vice Chancellor and Provost at Keele University, said: “We are delighted to be ranked so highly in this prestigious global university sustainability league table, the fourth year in succession that Keele has been ranked in the Top 25 globally.  

“Sustainability is a key overarching institutional priority for Keele University, and we seek to embed sustainability across all aspects of our operation. Our high ranking in this global sustainability league table confirms our position as a sector-leading institution for sustainability."
