London South Bank University (LSBU) is proud to have achieved a 'first class degree' in the People & Planet Green League 2011.
The Green League assessed 142 universities nationwide on 13 criteria which measure their commitment to environmental and ethical initiatives.
LSBU was ranked as the fourth greenest University in London and 28th in the UK.
It was the only London university to get full marks for the 'Curriculum' and 'Environmental Auditing and Management Systems' criteria.
The 'Curriculum' measure assesses how a university incorporates sustainability into all its teaching and research.
Top marks were also awarded for the 'Environmental Auditing and Management Systems' criteria, as LSBU proved it had successfully monitored all sustainability procedures including waste management, transport, energy, water, biodiversity, and procurement.
Anuj Saush, LSBU's Energy & Environment Manager, said: "We are very proud to have achieved a 'first class' ranking for our environmental commitment in this year's People & Planet Green League.
"LSBU will continue to work hard to build on our reputation as one of the greenest universities in the capital."
People & Planet's Green League is the only comprehensive and independent league table of UK universities ranked by environmental and ethical performance. It is compiled annually by the UK's largest student campaigning network, People & Planet.
