Imperial launches Sustainability Strategy

Policy Indications

Imperial College London has declared a new Sustainability Strategy. The Strategy sets out the College’s long-term goal to be a sustainable and net zero carbon institution by 2040. It includes specific aims across three key themes:  

    Resource management: responsible management of Imperial's resources and campuses including energy use, water management, waste reduction, catering, travel, procurement and biodiversity.  
    Academic excellence: tackling global challenges through research and making knowledge and skills for sustainability increasingly central to all learning at Imperial.
    Engagement: working with students, staff, local partners, local communities and the wider public, as well as partners in business.  

Imperial will be hosting a week of events focused on sustainability and climate change issues in the new year. Sustainability Week starts on 15 February 2021 and will provide numerous opportunities for engagement and debate. Further details will be provided in the new year.
