Kingston University understands that higher education institutions have the exciting opportunity of inspiring, educating and developing generations of students and staff communities who will take their experiences of sustainable behaviour into their everyday lives, work and careers.

As such we are committed to fostering a culture of sustainable practice throughout the University, ensuring we contribute positively to the economy, environment and society from the local to the global scale.

Our award-winning Sustainability Hub acts as a focal point for this work, facilitating and promoting best practice in the development of our campus operations, curriculum, research and partnerships.
