Edinburgh Napier University has been named as the top university in Scotland for environmental sustainability and ethics for the second consecutive year, according to the 2022 People and PlanetUniversity League​

People and Planet is the only independent league table of UK universities which focuses on environmental and ethical performance and ranks universities across a number of credentials, including carbon reduction, energy sources, waste and recycling, and workers' rights.

Edinburgh Napier achieved a 2:1 ranking and topped the league in Scotland while receiving an overall UK ranking of 37th, up 6 places from last year.

The University scored particularly highly for Education for Sustainable Development and saw its biggest increases in score within Workers’ Rights, highlighting recognition of ongoing collective work within these areas.

Jamie Pearson, Environmental Sustainability Manager at Edinburgh Napier, said:

We are incredibly proud of the work and leadership of our community that has been recognised within the 2022 University League audit. An array of students, staff and partners have led and enabled key areas of improvement in our work, including the development of new academic modules, the publication of an updated Ethical Investment Policy and gaining Living Wage Scotland accreditation. We will continue our environmental sustainability journey at Edinburgh Napier to meet the significant commitments embedded within our University Strategy”
