Following a four-day external audit held in July 2023, LSE is pleased to have been recertified for ISO14001 (Environmental Management System) and ISO50001 (Energy Management System), both considered internationally recognised standards. The audit covered our 30 buildings, six halls of residences and our sportsground.
These frameworks help organisations strategically identify, monitor, manage and enhance their environmental and energy impacts across many different areas of operation. Ensuring LSE follows robust sustainability frameworks is central to the School’s Sustainability Policy, Energy Policy and more broadly, the Sustainability Strategic Plan which highlights LSE’s ongoing efforts to improve the sustainability of its operations.
The external auditor commented that “the two management systems are achieving their intended outcomes and contribute towards the strategic direction of the organisation.”
On the recertification, Tammy Armstrong, LSE’s Head of Sustainability said “The result of our audit is a testament to all the hard work by the Estates Division and wider School. I am very pleased that LSE has recertified, and it reaffirms our commitment to sustainability.”
