University tops eco-friendly league table

The University of Wolverhampton has been ranked as one of the most environmentally-friendly universities in the country. 

It was given a First Class Honours award – the highest possible grade – in an annual eco survey by People and Planet, a large student organisation dedicated to ending world poverty, defending human rights and protecting the environment.

The University’s 2013 grade is a marked improvement on its 2011 rating, when it was given a 2:2 classification and demonstrates the significant progress made in just two years.

It is now ranked joint 39th out of all universities in the country, having soared nearly 100 places.
