Sustainability Statistics

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Queen Mary University of London,

I would like to request your data that you have collected on sustainability, more specifically:
- energy consumption (separated by location)
- who you buy energy from (statistics on what fuel they use?)
- metrics on how much you have met your targets (can you also provide a list of targets you have set, including quantitative goals)
- how many paid and voluntary sustainability staff are there?
- what percentage of the waste from campuses is recycled currently?
- who was involved in the writing of the Queen Mary Sustainability Action Plan 2020-23? What are their contact details if this is not private information?
- in your action plan, you said that your aim is to produce a sustainable procurement guide - what is the deadline for completing this?
- what is your budget to invest in sustainability to achieve the aims you have set out?

Yours faithfully,

Amelia Jones & Rosa Hughes
