The Sustainability Management Board is the group responsible for the development and reporting of the sustainability strategy and key actions of the University. Chaired by one of our Pro Vice Chancellors it includes those staff that have responsibilities for key sustainability issues or have a close professional interest in particular areas.
For information of membership and structure of the board please review SMB Organisational Structure diagram by clicking here.
The SMB has developed a framework that helps those with responsibility for delivering sustainability for better understanding how sustainability relates to their areas and others, the policies of the University, appropriate laws and reporting requirements and helps set benchmarks, targets and actions for improvements. The Sustainability Management Framework helps staff have conversations that can systematically deliver solutions, joining up projects and initiatives that can be mutually beneficial saving time, effort and resources. The Framework is supported by the Sustainability Matrix that helps stakeholders get a quick visual understanding of the relationships between impact areas of the University.
