Leeds Arts University is committed to establishing the highest possible standards of sustainability across all our core activities.
We recognise the role of education in enabling students to develop the knowledge, skills, values and behaviours needed for sustainable development, ensuring they are equipped to meet the rapidly changing demands of the world. We recognise our role in contributing to local and national initiatives regarding carbon reduction and the climate emergency.
We are a signatory of the SDG Accord and have committed to reporting annually on the progress we make in contributing to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Reports from all signatory institutions are collated to provide a summary report of how both the Higher and Further Education sectors are contributing to the SDGs globally which is presented each year to the UN High Level Political Forum.
