Sustainable UCL


Positive Climate

UCL research shows that climate change is already a global emergency. Using our innovation, research and collaborative spirit UCL has the opportunity demonstrate how it is not only possible to limit warming to 1.5°C, but also that this offers a more equitable, healthier and happier future. Our goal is to have net zero carbon buildings by 2024, and to be a net zero carbon institution by 2030.
