Climate change and sustainability
Securing a healthier, fairer, more sustainable future for all
As a community of staff, students and partners, UCL is using its breadth of talent and expertise to address the climate challenge on multiple fronts, ranging from what we can achieve today, to pioneering future system change, and putting sustainability at the heart of our campus.
““What needs to emerge post-COVID, is a determination on the part of government, business and everyone else that the economic recovery that will follow will build inexorably towards a zero-carbon world rather than away from it.” - Professor Paul Ekins OBE, Professor of Resources and Environmental Policy and Director of UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources
Addressing the challenge on multiple fronts
Climate science research
We're improving our understanding of how our climate is changing at both planetary and local
Adaptation and mitigation
How and where we live as we adapt to future climates is a major global challenge – we're providing the solutions.
Changing opinion and policy
We're ensuring knowledge is shared to drive constructive public dialogue and build the consensus for action across communities.
Zero-emission transport is a step closer thanks to new UCL-HORIBA partnership at UCL East. The company will fund the HORIBA Chair in Advanced Propulsion Technologies as well as the work of two PhD students who will conduct research with them.
