WORCESTER’S Green Party Mayor has praised the city university’s drive towards greater sustainability.
Speaking following a recent visit to the site, Councillor Louis Stephen said: “I’m very keen to see the university continue what it does in terms of supporting biodiversity and reducing its own carbon emissions.
“One of the biggest causes of carbon is heating buildings and all the new university buildings have been built to a high environmentally sustainable standard and that’s to be commended.”
The university has recently been shortlisted for two Green Gown Awards, one recognising its work supporting biodiversity on campus.
On his visit, Coun Stephen also highlighted the award-winning Woo Bikes scheme, a joint city e-bike partnership project piloted and led by the university
