Environmental Manager

As Environmental Manager my core responsibilities are the University’s waste, emissions to air and discharges to water, but my remit also includes noise. Managing the University’s waste now involves considering how to Reduce it, Reuse it and Recycle it, after that we Recover what energy we can from the residual waste and endeavour to send as little as possible to Landfill. Managing our discharges to water involves ensuring that only certain things go down the drains and that those things go down the right drains. Protecting the surface water drains which discharge into brooks and streams adjoining the campus is a key part of our environmental protection responsibilities. My other responsibilities include assisting on the delivery of the University’s EMS (Environmental Management System), which is ISO14001 accredited, as well as overseeing the Environmental Management Assistant, who engages with our 6000 students in halls and runs the inter-hall Green League.

Amber Quraishi
Environmental Management Assistant

The Environmental Management Assistant supports both the Environmental Manager and the Sustainability Team. My focus within this role is increasing student engagement with the topic of sustainability and their participation in the University’s sustainability agenda both on campus and in the wider community. This is in part achieved through the University’s Green League, an inter-hall competition which aims to encourage students to reduce energy consumption and improve both the quantity and quality of recycling. In conjunction with this I will be working with other students and staff on a series of engagement activities across the academic year to promote proactive sustainable behaviours.
