Bartlett Net Zero 2030
The Bartlett has pledged to become a net-zero carbon faculty by the year 2030. This aligns with UCL’s overall commitment to becoming a net-zero institution by the same year.
At The Bartlett, much of our built environment teaching and research focuses on how we can tackle the climate emergency. Our Together for Climate Action campaign in the run-up to COP26 focused our academic expertise on urgent global policy challenges. Our net-zero commitment acknowledges that we too must play our part in reducing global heating.
The Bartlett aims to take a leading role in demonstrating how organisations can play their part. Commitments like this are essential if we are to limit global heating to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Any higher, and we are likely to face environmental catastrophe.
We will be running a regular blog to show how we are progressing towards this target, and publishing reports around different thematic areas (available below). You can also subscribe to our climate action newsletter to get the latest updates from across the faculty. All Bartlett staff and students are invited to get involved. Please fill out this form to let us know if you are interested in any particular areas.

The Bartlett Net-Zero Advisory Group
It’s important that everyone across The Bartlett has the opportunity to contribute to, and comment upon, our net-zero strategy. That’s why we’ve set up a Net-Zero Advisory Group (NZAG).
The group consists of a representative of each of The Bartlett’s departments, plus a student representative, and our Sustainable UCL business partner. The group’s remit is to provide a strategic overview of the net-zero strategy, to represent the interests and concerns of Bartlett departments in relation to the net-zero strategy, and to communicate information about the net-zero strategy to the departments.
Members of the Bartlett are encouraged to contact their local NZAG member to discuss any issues relating to the net-zero strategy. You can read more about sustainability initiatives at The Bartlett, including the NZAG, on The Bartlett staff intranet.
