Welcome to the University of St Andrews sustainability blog

We share news, stories and events on sustainability in St Andrews. The University is working top-down and bottom-up, with ambitious governance and the student voice to become net-zero by 2035.

The teams

We are three groups working to accelerate the sustainability work of St Andrews:

  • The Environment team is a group of people under the Estates Department who works to improve biodiversity, energy efficiency, food, active travel, circular economy and student and staff engagement.
  • Transition St Andrews is a social hub of students, staff and local residents working to strengthen the sustainable community.
  • The Environmental Sustainability Board works with ambitious governance to lead sustainable education, research and operational change at the University.


Email [email protected] for any sustainable-related enquiries. We are happy to help and keen to hear your ideas on how the University can improve its operations towards a green future.
