Welcome - Do the Green Thing

People and Planet Green League Award

With more than 28,000 students and 1,500 staff across two campuses the University of East London naturally has a significant environmental impact. What we buy and consume, the energy we use, what we do with our waste and how we interact with each other all contribute to this.

We want you to get involved in helping to reduce UEL’s environmental impact by ‘Doing the Green Thing’. This could be anything from using less energy to recycling more or taking part in our projects and events. The following pages bring together lots of ideas, advice and resources on different environmental issues.

If there’s anything you think is missing or if you would like to find out more about what we do, just get in touch!


Currently we are...

... developing UEL's Sustainability Skills Programme with our partners for next year.

... preparing for Green Impact 2013/14.

... finalising our collections for the British Heart Foundation following Green Move Out 2013. So far, UEL students have donated £13,000+ worth of clothes, books, electrical equipment and kitchen goods.

... preparing our Energy Reports to report on our monthly gas, electricity and water usage.

... working with our Capital Projects team to trial the RICS Ska certification for sustainable fit-outs for a refurbishment project in the East Building.
