Briefing on the University’s Environmental Management System

Wed 25 Nov 2020


The University has made a commitment to establish and implement a University-wide Environmental Management System (EMS) in line with the international standard ISO 14001:2015.

We have been working with a consultant, Karen Gallagher, to develop the remaining elements of the EMS. Work has been slowed by the Covid-19 pandemic but with the onset of the new academic year and us all working in a ‘new normal’ we hope to push forward with establishing the remaining elements of the EMS. This will involve, amongst other things, duty of care and compliance training for relevant operational staff; the continuation of internal audits tackling our areas of high risk first; and checking the competency of staff that have a role in the EMS and identifying any gaps in training needs.

This briefing is for colleagues within the Estates Division and Safety Office and the purpose of the briefing is to:

  • describe the purpose and value of ISO14001 certification
  • describe the relevance of ISO14001 to the ED and Safety Office and management responsibilities for EMS
  • summarise key policies and procedures and how these relate to ED and Safety Office teams, and
  • outline key actions required for ED and Safety Office teams.

The briefing will take place on MS Teams and attendees will be emailed a full agenda, including meeting links, nearer the time.

Target audience

Senior Leadership Team and relevant senior managers within Estate Division and Safety Office.
