Manchester Metropolitan University, who are attending the Manchester University Fair, have been named as the greenest university in the UK by the People and Planet University League.

Manchester Metropolitan is the only university to retain a top three position for five consecutive years, demonstrating a continued commitment to reducing the University’s environmental impact. The universities of Gloucestershire, Nottingham Trent, Worcester and Aston rounded off the top five.

Hannah Smith, Co-Director for Campaigns and Research at People and Planet said: “The University was one of 40 universities to sign the People and Planet 'Green Education Declaration' in 2012 – five years on, they have truly proved their commitment to this pledge."

The People and Planet University League assesses a range of environmental and ethical factors, management practices and policies, and performance in carbon reduction, energy sources, waste and recycling, and water reduction.
