  • Research,
  • Food, Health & Well-being,
  • Landscape, Heritage and Natural Resources,
  • Recycling & Waste Management,
  • Energy, Water & Climate Change,

These categories mirror those of the Green Campus Programme. We aim to streamline sustainability management in the university through both of these processes and approaches.
