The University of Southampton (UoS) is a teaching and research institution in the top 100 universities worldwide (QS World University rankings).
Nous partnered with the UoS and the Southampton University Students’ Union (SUSU) to develop a sustainability strategy to reduce the university’s negative environmental impact and position it as a higher education leader in sustainability. The UoS and SUSU sought to use the COVID-19 disruption to improve behaviours and processes.

We did three things to deliver the sustainability strategy over three months:
The UoS Sustainability Strategy 2020-2025 is a bold statement of UoS’ sustainability ambitions. It will underpin actions including developing a roadmap to net zero emissions for Scope 1 and 2 by 2030, and integrating sustainability into every education programme. The strategy will evolve as UoS refines its emissions reduction targets and pilots sustainability schemes.
