Sustainable Campus

Our vision is to be a university where Environmental Sustainability is placed alongside graduate employability as a key priority.

By integrating environmental sustainability into every aspect of design, Birley is playing a major part in achieving Manchester Met's ambition of ‘Zero Carbon, Zero Waste, Zero Waste’ and Maximum Biodiversity.

Zero Carbon

Using design and technology to optimise the use of electricity and gas, and reduce carbon footprint.

Zero Waste 

Maximum recycling and Zero Waste to landfill.

Zero Water

Collecting, extracting and reusing water to meet our needs.
