Sustainability at Portsmouth
The future of our planet is in everyone's hands. We're doing our bit to help. We hold an ISO 14001 certification, meaning our environmental work is internationally-recognised for its effectiveness.
Our Energy and Environment team oversee this work including our recycling and waste initiatives, encouraging us all to live, think and work from a greener perspective.
We’re busy redesigning our website and this section is still a work-in-progress – but you can still find out the impact of our sustainability initiatives in our Environmental Sustainability Performance Report [PDF] or check out the sustainability information on our old website.
