Goal Six: Secure our future sustainability


Create the resources to reinvest in the University’s long term success.

Sustainability covers many interrelated concerns, be they environmental, financial, social or reputational. To engage fully and compete effectively on tomorrow’s global stage, we must address them all, across all activities.

As an organisation that manages its footprint and impact on the environment, we’ll use this as a foundation to embed the broader principles of sustainability.

In this current climate, we’re all aware of the need to seek out opportunities to generate additional income and surpluses to underpin our future investment. We’re also focused on the vital importance of this investment in securing the continuing excellence of the Warwick experience, across all disciplines.
