We support a number of events and initiatives each year, including Climate Week Scotland Scotland’s Climate Week in September and our own Sustainability Week in March.
In September we’ll launch our energy campaign for 2023/24. The campaign will focus on our collective opportunity to further reduce electricity and gas consumption throughout the University.
We work on a number of events and promotions throughout the year, from cycling and active travel to waste and wider environmental sustainability initiatives.

Scotland’s Climate Week - September 2022
The Week started with an open day at the Lion’s Gate Garden
at our Merchiston Campus. We ran promotions throughout the week highlighting examples of projects led by the University community, linking our work to the wider work of the Scottish Government and partners throughout Scotland. We also launched our short environmental sustainability film embedded within the front page of our website
Sustainability Week - March 2023
We ran a range of events throughout the University during March 2023. We invited partners from Edinburgh Napier Students Association (ENSA), Home Energy Scotland, Lothian Buses, SHRUB and Sustrans to provide information and advice to students and staff. With financial support from the City of Edinburgh Council we also offered free adult cycle training and bicycle maintenance training.
During the week, members of the Environmental Sustainability Strategy Group (ESSG)
provided an online overview of our Environmental Sustainability Strategy (ESS)
and wider environmental sustainability work. As ever, attendees were encouraged to get involved on the day and following by getting in touch with ideas, observations and opportunities.
