Sustainability is really important to us

For many years we have been working to make our campuses more sustainable, from stopping supplying plastic straws, zero waste initiatives, to using locally sourced and ethical produce, to ambitious energy and sustainable procurement projects.

Furthermore, we aim to create a healthy, ecologically, economically, and socially responsible living environment. We recognise our responsibility towards promoting the principles of one planet living; including minimising our use of non-renewable resources, appropriate planning and investment in sustainable practices, using locally sourced and ethical produce, the involvement of customers, and providing an education in sustainability relevant to a world threatened by climate change.

We proudly fly the Green Flag Award for our stunning Campus grounds and gardens. The judges described our grounds as a “wonderful, unique” place and a “horticultural wonder”. Above all, our gardens are a “perfect habitat” for wild flowers, insects, birds, and bees. Furthermore, the judges described Tremough and the Italianate gardens as a “plant collector’s paradise”.

Take a look at our Cornwall Plus sustainability infographic and our sustainable facts and figures of the latest Penryn Campus sustainability initiatives for 2023/24.

Cornwall Plus is a Gold winner in the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2020/21 for the International category, has won Best Accommodation 2019/20 with Academic Venue Solutions, and is a silver winner in the British Youth Travel Association Awards 2019/20.

Ultimately, all surplus made by Cornwall Plus is gifted back to Falmouth Exeter Plus for reinvestment in the University campus and its services, to directly benefit students and staff.
