Find out how green your University is using our interactive Green League table which ranks every UK university and measures its progress to becoming a Transition University.

The award-winning People & Planet Green League is the only independent league table showing the environmental & ethical performance of UK universities and is credited with putting climate change on the desk of every Vice-Chancellor in the UK.

More universities than ever participated in People & Planet’s Green League 2013 with 143 universities providing People & Planet and HESA with enough information to be entered into the 2013 league table.

For potential students

If you are considering going to university compare your UCAS choices first by using our Create-Your-Own Green League tool. Studying or working at the greenest UK universities will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to get the green jobs of the future, whereas going to the worst can dramatically increase your own carbon footprint!

Once you start at the university of choice, get involved in campaigning with your local People & Planet group and work with your university to make the transition to a low-carbon, sustainable future

Visit our Student Media page to help make a big splash about the Green League results in your local student paper.
