Sustainability

Sustainability and energy efficiency are part of everything we do as a School, running through our teaching, our research and our consultancy.

Green Impact

Green Impact is a UCL-wide environmental competition and accreditation scheme that allows departments and divisions across the UCL to improve their environmental impact, support UCL's Sustainability Policy and engage peers and colleagues with these essential issues. The School actively takes part in this programme, striving to improve our environmental impact on the world.

Our Green Policy outlines the ways we're putting theory into practice:

This academic year our improvements include:

  • Conducting energy audits to ensure equipment is switched off daily
  • Participating in UCL's Big Christmas Switch Off
  • Installing new signage promoting energy and water saving
  • Committing to using recyclable paper for printing and marketing materials
  • Significantly reducing our paper usage
  • Increasing our vegetarian catering at events

UCL Sustainability Award winners 2019


UCL Sustainability Awards
The School Green Impact team, Green Onionswere awarded a Gold Award for their work as part of 2018-2019’s Green Impact initiative.
 
The award is acknowledgement of the many processes which mean that sustainability is now embedded in School culture. These processes include how we use and recycle paper, what food we order for catering, and regular reminders on topics from cycling to provision of rechargeable batteries to biodiversity on campus. We're particularly proud this year of our reduction of paper use, increased recycling and our plant surgery.

Bullying and harassment

Bullying, harassment and sexual misconduct in the working and learning environment are never acceptable. 

What is bullying? 

Bullying is offensive, intimidating, malicious or insulting behaviour involving the misuse of power that can make a person feel vulnerable, upset, humiliated, undermined or threatened. Power does not always mean being in a position of authority, but can include both personal strength and the power to coerce through fear or intimidation.

What is harassment? 

Harassment is unwanted conduct related to a protected characteristic (such as age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy or maternity, race and ethnicity, marriage and civil partnership, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation) which violates a person’s dignity or creates an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment.

If you see or experience unacceptable behaviour, use Report + Support to tell us about it.
