Sustainability and Climate Change

We have joined forces with education providers from around the world to take a stand against climate change by signing a landmark pledge to become a carbon net-zero organisation.

The momentous move sees our Group named alongside more than 594 education institutions dedicated to supporting the UN’s ‘Race to Zero’ initiative globally.

Signed ahead of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference, the pledge commits us to three key actions:

  1. Mobilising more resources for action-oriented climate change research and skills creation;
  2. Pledge to reach net-zero by 2030, or 2050 at the very latest;
  3. Increasing the delivery of environmental and sustainability education across curriculum, campus and community outreach programmes.
