Leadership, Staff and Governance for Sustainability

Staff Training

All new staff at Kent undertake an Introduction to Sustainability e-learning module on the staff training Moodle using the link on the right.

Staff in specific roles relating to sustainability will be required to undertake additional training. For example, staff whose role involves use, transport or disposal of hazardous materials may be required to undertake spill response training. Please talk to your line manager if you are unsure if this applies to you.

We also run Carbon Literacy training for staff, available on request.

If you have any queries related to sustainability training please contact Catherine Morris (Sustainability Manager) at

External Partnerships

The Sustainability team works closely with a number of external organisations. We are educational members of the Environmental Association of Universities which allows us to share knowledge of delivering sustainability in HE from Universities across the UK. 

We also represent the University in a number of external community action groups such a Canterbury Climate Action Partnership (CCAP) and the Canterbury SDG Forum


Vice chancellor Karen Cox

We will embed sustainability through building the UN Sustainable Development Goals into our research, education, leadership, operations, administration and engagement.
