ABOUT US

Green UCL brings together people, programmes, events and initiatives that tackle the challenges of sustainability, both at UCL and in the wider world. We're a partnership made up of UCL's Environmental Sustainability Team, a network of Green Champions and volunteers and supporters from across the university.

We have a vision for UCL to become a leader in the field of sustainability; through excellence in multidisciplinary academic teaching and research; by creating a culture of collaboration, innovation and action and through the sustainable development and use of our estate. See the profiles below to find out more about the Environmental Sustainability Team.
