At the University of Reading, we recognise that hospitality operations can have a huge impact on the environment. To tackle this, we’re committed to delivering services that are environmentally sustainable.
We aim to promote healthy and sustainable initiatives in all areas of our business – from purchasing, all the way through to the services we offer to our students and other customers.
To fulfil this long-term environmental ambition, we aim to be the greenest university in the UK, leading by example and committing to genuine carbon neutrality by 2030. This is reinforced by our world-class research into climate change and its impact on both the environment and society.
Our environmental goals will be underpinned by a commercial strategy. As well as efficient resource use, waste reduction, and a focus on long-term cost, we’ll prioritise financial sustainability into the future.
