Sustainable UCL



As London’s Global University with a diverse community, we have an opportunity to inspire sustainability action on an international scale.

A report published in 2021 by the Students Organising for Sustainability (SOS) found that 91% of students agree their place of study should actively incorporate and promote sustainable development, and that 84% would like to see sustainable development activity actively incorporated and promoted through all courses, see here for more information. 

Through teaching and extracurricular activities, we will inspire our students to become the sustainability leaders of tomorrow.

UCL's Sustainability Strategy makes the commitment that at UCL every student will have the opportunity to study and be involved in sustainability by 2024. Read on to find out how we will achieve this, and how you can embed sustainability into the curriculum or make it a part of your studies.
