The Royal Mint partners with the University of Hull to implement sustainable packaging of the future research project
Accelerating a net zero future

Building a sustainable and carbon free future

There is no greater threat to humanity than the climate crisis, and we take sustainability seriously at the University of Hull. We will transform our campus to be carbon-neutral by 2027.

Our researchers work with partners and industry to seek sustainable solutions for the future of our planet. Our Energy and Environment Institute is tackling global environmental resilience and energy sustainability, while our industry-leading Aura Innovation Centre combines research expertise and fresh ideas to enable businesses to reduce their carbon footprint.

Through our Waterline partnership, we are giving the Humber, the UK's Energy Estuary, a global relevance by working together to develop the region as a demonstrator of a zero-carbon economy. Our research is helping to accelerate the move to clean energy, particularly offshore wind, with the world’s largest offshore wind farms on our doorstep. We’re helping to reduce the cost of offshore wind energy, and providing a pipeline of talented professionals for the industry.
