Bath Spa University has been given a first class award in the latest People and Planet University League table, making it one of the greenest universities in the UK.
The People and Planet University League, now in its tenth year, is the only comprehensive and independent league table of UK universities ranked by environmental and ethical performance, across 13 different categories.
Bath Spa was ranked 26th overall out of 154 institutions, and scored 100 per cent for its environmental auditing and management systems, 90 per cent in recognition of its environmental sustainability policy and strategy, and 85 per cent for carbon management.
