Accommodation, Catering and Events has identified sustainable development as development that ‘meets the needs of current customers and staff without compromising the ability of future generations to be able to meet their own needs’. Sustainability is a process that helps us ensure we use resources wisely and in a way that takes into account associated environmental, social and economic effects.

Accommodation, Catering and Events is committed to placing sustainability at the heart of our mission …

  • making sustainability integral to the delivery of facilities and services to all our customers
  • taking positive actions to promote continual environmental improvement
  • setting and achieving clearly defined sustainable development objectives and targets.

Accommodation, Catering and Events believes that this work should also recognise the University of Edinburgh’s SRS Strategy 2010-20 and so build on that policy.
