Leeds Arts University recognises the importance of embedding sustainability within its practices, both operationally and educationally.

We are committed to establishing the highest possible standards of sustainability across all our core activities. We operate within a University Sustainability Framework that guides how we engage with and advance our sustainability practices.

Our Sustainability Committee plans, supports and monitors the University’s sustainability activity and how it adheres to the University’s Sustainability Framework. The Committee is chaired by the Vice-Chancellor. 

Leeds Arts University is also a member of The Alliance for Sustainability Leadership in Education (EAUC). The EAUC is a not for profit member based charity supporting sustainability in universities and colleges. They aim to inspire, promote and support change towards best practice sustainability within the operations, curriculum and research of the UK tertiary education sector.

We are signatory of the SDG Accord and report annually on our progress in contributing to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).
