Audits & Awards
EcoCampus provides Universities and Colleges with the practical tools to help them manage and improve their sustainability performance using a management system approach. An independent audit adds reliability to this process, while assuring interested parties and enhancing the institution’s reputation. External audits are undertaken by the EcoCampus team at the Bronze and Silver Phases and by our partner NQA (UKAS accredited EMS certification body) at the Gold and Platinum Phases. At the Platinum Phase, NQA also audit against the international environmental management standard, ISO14001.
No hidden costs - All audits are included in the EcoCampus fees.
