We're committed to continual environmental improvement.
Environmental management and sustainability is about ensuring we use precious resources wisely and efficiently and that we take into consideration environmental, social and economic factors in our decision making processes.
Our Environmental Management Policy outlines the key areas we're addressing to reduce our environmental impact.

We've been improving our environmental performance in many ways:
With Fairtrade you have the power to change the world every day. With simple shopping choices and purchasing items with the Fairtrade logo, you can get farmers a better deal. And that means they can make their own decisions, control their futures and lead the dignified life everyone deserves.
Our 2018/2020 impact report has a great story to tell on our journey
At the heart of supporting fairtrade at Middlesex is collaboration and a good example of that is the Network of university’s across the UK that the Middlesex Fairtrade team have built, all supporting Fairtrade and sustainability. The networking group now spans across 21 university’s and for the first time, will be collaborating on a joint venture for Fairtrade fortnight 2021 celebrations bringing Higher education students and staff together.
As well as our external partners, we continually support Fairtrade by providing Fairtrade products at our catering outlets, our vending machines and our hospitality services supported by our catering supplier Chartwells, and also through MDXSU Merchandise with their selection of Fairtrade cotton items.
Middlesex University are proud to have been a Fairtrade awarded University since 2017, where it has grown from strength to strength. From being part of the university Fairtrade award pilot scheme ran by NUS and Fairtrade foundation, helping to shape the criteria of the award into what it is today, to now gaining a 3 star award status, which is currently one of 2 of the highest accredited university’s across the UK.
The work that has gone into Fairtrade at Middlesex has and continues to bring opportunities for our students more and more every year. You can find out more about how to get involved via our social media:
