Emma Jakins joined the University as a Sustainability Coordinator in 2022. She studied a BSc in Geography at Bath Spa between 2014-2017, before gaining an MSc in Wildlife Conservation from UWE.
Emma helps to deliver the Sustainability Strategy across the University, engaging the Bath Spa community (staff and students) in sustainability. Her job varies from promoting our cycling facilities, increasing our recycling rates and promoting sustainable food, to running Green Week, Fairtrade Fortnight and the Bath Spa allotment.
Emma ensures Bath Spa’s Sustainability related awards and certifications, such as the Fairtrade Award, are kept up to date and oversees work to ensure Bath Spa remains a first class university in the People and Planet Green League.
She oversees the Bath Spa Biodiversity Network and the Environment Champion scheme and supervises a small team of Sustainability Ambassadors, made up of passionate members of the University’s student body.
