University of Bristol awarded international environmental accreditations

27 June 2011

The University of Bristol has achieved the rare distinction of being awarded two international environmental accreditations for significantly reducing its impact on the environment.

The University-wide accreditations — ISO 14001, an environmental management system standard and ISO 14064 (CEMARS), a carbon and emissions management and reduction standard — mark a major step forward in the University’s efforts in managing its sustainability.

Both accreditations have been awarded to the University for its wide-ranging green initiatives, led by the Sustainability Team, which have demonstrated year-on-year improvements and investment in energy-saving measures, sustainable transport projects, and a reduction in its carbon emissions.
