UCL Chemical Engineering announces Sustainability Travel Policy to be Carbon Neutral by July 21/22

6 August 2020

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new Sustainability Travel Policy, as of 1 August 2020.

UCL Chemical Engineering recognises that our activities and operations can result in impacts on the environment. Therefore we are working to reduce the negative effects of these activities and operations whilst promoting and striving for positive outcomes where possible. Travel represents one such activity.

Our aims include:

  • Reducing the need to travel for work and study, where appropriate, through its use of information technology. 
  • Promote and increase walking and cycling and the use of sustainable public transport (I.e. train instead of flying).
  • Minimise the impact of road travel using low emission vehicles, and efficient route planning.
  • Offsetting the remaining carbon emissions for travel where a less efficient method is unavoidable.

The policy relates to all Chemical Engineering employees, students.
With a combination of all the above, UCL Chemical Engineering aims to be carbon neutral by the end of July 21/22.
