The university has made available a budget to cover the staffing, operation and delivery of sustainability programmes at Greenwich. It also has a £500K budget per year to spend on identified sustainability, including carbon, improvements that sit outside the estates projects budget.

To support student and staff initiatives we also have a Proposals Fund to support projects that can deliver sustainability benefit to the university. Please contact the sustainability team ( for the proforma to complete. In 2022 students submitted the Real Time project for funding which we provided to see how student to student engagement can develop.
