Green Awareness


Taking care of our environment

A current priority for our civilization is to adapt the way we live and work, so as to reduce our impact on the environment and stop climate change. In support of this endeavour, we are trying to make our Division a greener one.


We have set up a Green Impact Team and in 2014 we were awarded Platinum in the recent UCL Green Impact Programme Competition. This means PaLS is UCL's greenest department, but we will need to continue to work hard in order to become even greener in the years to come. 

The rankings of the People & Planet University League 2015 show UCL's jump forward in its environmental and ethical performance. UCL is ranked 29th out of 151 UK universities. In 2014, UCL was ranked 61st, so this is a great achievement. Read more about this story on the UCL Sustainability pages.

The UCL Environment Awareness e-Learning course focuses on environmental good practice and is an essential introduction to sustainability at UCL.
