Here at Sheffield SU we hold sustainability as a core value in all our work. We try and make sure that we are making sustainable decisions in our everyday activity. With all kinds of student groups working around this issue, and many sustainable initiatives within the SU, there are lots of different ways you can get involved!

The Student Life Survey Sustainability Results Report shares feedback from students on sustainability at the SU.

SU Sustainability Strategy

Sheffield Students’ Union will be seen as an exemplar of sustainability on campus, in the city and beyond. Our members will feel empowered to campaign for changes needed at the University to make the University of Sheffield more sustainable. As well as take action in the city, they study and reside in. The Students Union will pioneer alternatives to unsustainable organisational practice and facilitate students to contribute to a more systematically sustainable world, taking action for climate justice.
