As a place of learning and science, the Wellcome Genome Campus takes its responsibility to mitigate the impact we have on the planet as a high priority. In line with our mission to improve human health and wellbeing, we put sustainability at the heart of our operations and reduce the demands we place upon natural resources.
In response to the scientific consensus on climate change and the urgency of the global situation, we would like to maximise the positive impact we can have, both locally and globally. As such, we have launched a formal Environmental Sustainability Strategy which we are committed to achieving.

We are committed to our key objectives for reducing energy consumption, carbon emissions and cost, whilst demonstrating continuous improvement.
Waste and Recycling
Our aim is to minimise the use of all consumable materials and use renewable and recyclable materials where possible.
Wetlands Nature Reserve
This six-hectare (15-acre) nature reserve has been specially created to provide a range of habitats for local plant and animal species.
The Campus has developed a multi-award winning Green Travel Plan, which reduces the carbon footprint of our staff as they travel to and from work.
