It is vital that the University plays a leading role in delivering net zero emissions. This is not a threat, but an opportunity to deliver excellence in education and research in novel and effective ways.
The Climate and Ecological Emergency Advisory Group has lead the work of creating, recommending to USG and Council for approval, and ensuring delivery of the University’s most ambitious Sustainability Sub-Strategy (SSS) to date. Membership includes a diverse spread of the University community that represent all aspects of the University’s activity.
The Group delivered its first recommendations to USG on 27 October 2020, and to Council on 30 November. On 9 December 2020, we made our declaration of a climate and ecological emergency official. This puts sustainability at the top of the agenda, ensuring we are all taking responsibility for our environmental and social impacts.
