zero carbon by 2038
Developing plans and implementing actions to take us towards our ambition
We are one of the greenest universities in the UK.
We’re proud to be a leading university for sustainability – not only winning awards for our initiatives and our performance, but also ranking in the top three of the People and Planet University League for the past seven years. Yet we know that there is much more to do: we aim to build on our position, becoming a global leader that charts a path for others to follow.
We have a major role to play in limiting the impact of climate change. As a large organisation with thousands of students and employees and a significant estate, we must reduce and eradicate our own emissions and impacts. As researchers and educators, we must also explore and share new ways of living and working sustainably.
