Oxford students given access to employers’ green credentials

Education Information

Oxford students will soon have access to potential employers’ sustainability credentials thanks to a new initiative by the University’s Careers Service. All recruiters looking to advertise positions to Oxford's students will now be asked a series of questions about their approach to environmental sustainability, based on the Oxford Martin Principles for Climate-Conscious Investment. Employers’ responses will be made available to students, allowing them to make informed decisions about their future employment options.

The questions will be asked to any recruiter wishing to post a vacancy on the University’s CareerConnect system. Based on the answers, students will be able to easily access an organisation’s stance on climate change, their plans on how they will achieve Net-Zero by 2050 and remain profitable, and other relevant information.

In future, students will be able to search for employers who have answered sustainability questions in specific ways. The Careers Service is also considering publishing the data in future careers fairs’ booklets and similar publications.
