The Environment At Massey University

Welcome to the home of environmental information, initiatives and activities at Massey University. Here you can find out what is happening on each of the campuses, how staff and students can get involved, and links to information and ideas of how we can all be proactive in caring for the environment, both on campus and at home.


Environmental issues make the news almost every day now and bookshops are stocked with the latest offerings, covering everything from Al Gore to the intricacies of composting. It can be hard to keep up with it all and to know where to get started, but we can all make a difference.


Sustainable Campus Management at Massey

At different times and through various means, new ideas and feedback has been sought to guide the planning and development of Massey University's sustainable campus management programmes. As a result of recent discussions a list of proposed next steps has been developed. It is hoped that publicising these proposals will encourage further discussion and feedback, which will assist future planning in this sphere.

This sustainable campus poster (188 KB) details the 14 proposed next steps for Massey University. All feedback is welcome - please utilise the contacts on the document. We look forward to hearing from you.
