Sustainability at UH - About Us

About Us

The Sustainability and Environment team is responsible for driving the university's sustainability agenda, managing our environmental compliance obligations, and empowering the Herts community to make sustainable choices.

The Environmental Sustainability team is based in Estates and is made up of an engagement co-ordinator (Jess Money), Environmental Management Support (Kenneth Yeung) and a Senior Environment and Sustainability Adviser (Nanna Blomquist). We work with all things sustainability, from energy, waste, and carbon emissions to engagement, education, and events. We take a holistic and embedded approach, meaning that we invite all staff, students, and partners across the university to get involved and help us achieve our sustainability goals. 

Our aims and objectives are based on our identified impact areas and delivered through 4 pathways as can be seen below.  

Our commitments to environmental protection include pledging to be Net Zero by 2050 and to become a Nature Positive University.  You can read more about our environmental sustainability approach on the UH website.

The student voice is an integral part of our sustainability strategy, and we have student representation at many of our working and committee groups such as Engagement, Waste, and Biodiversity. If you would like to get involved, please see the How To Get Involved page, or email sustainable@herts.ac.uk.

Below you can find examples of some of the things that we have done and offer.
