ARU's sustainability activities are overseen by the Finance, Employment and General Purposes Committee (FEGP), a sub-committee of our Board of Governors.
Our Sustainability Strategy Group meets quarterly and is chaired by our Chief Operating Officer, reporting twice a year to FEGP.
Our Students’ Union and student representatives are represented on our Sustainability Strategy Group and Sustainable Operations Group, and our Board of Governors is required to have a student governor. Find out more about broader ARU governance, including our Board of Governors.
Several working groups, reporting to the Sustainability Strategy Group, have been established to focus on delivery of each of our sustainability strategy goals.
This group reports to the Research and Innovation (R&I) Committee. In 2022 it published its first annual report outlining what we've been doing in our research, teaching and operations to further each of the 17 SDGs.
