Environmental Compliance: introduction to key risks and practical action

Wed 21 Jul 2021


Do you know about environmental legislation that you need to comply with in your University role?

The University has committed to developing an Environmental Management System (EMS) in line with the international standard ISO:14001. As part of this, a programme of audits will soon take place, to determine compliance of University buildings and sites with environmental legislation. In this briefing session, we're providing relevant University staff with an overview of some of the key areas of environmental legislation that a typical EMS audit would cover, including practical tips and actions for staying compliant.

Target audience

Staff involved in management, operation and maintenance of University buildings and facilities
