From 2017 we will be reporting on our Up to uS responsible business strategy online, following the core elements of latest Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards sustainability reporting framework. Our GRI Content Index below includes hyperlinks to detailed information and data.
To help investors understand our environmental and broader sustainability performance, we disclose information to external organisations including:
- CDP: We have been disclosing to CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) since 2006, showing year on year improvements culminating in our 2016 rating of B. In 2015 we earned a place on the Climate Disclosure Leaders Index. Details of our CDP scoring is available via our press releases. The full text of our disclosures and the corresponding score cards can be found here.
- GRESB: We have been disclosing to GRESB since 2011, and in 2016 retained GreenStar status for the second consecutive year. Unite Students was awarded 4 out of 5 stars under the new GRESB rating scheme. Our GRESB score cards can be found here.
