Green UCL’s Annual Report for 2012-13 is now ready. This report showcases examples of best practice and sets out our progress in creating a more sustainable UCL.

  1. To create a campus which supports UCL’s activities in a sustainable way
  2. To enable, empower and support all UCL communities to address our environmental sustainability impacts
  3. To provide the education, advancement, dissemination and application of sustainable development
  4. To maximise the wider impact of UCL’s environmental sustainability activities at local, regional, national and international level through collaboration, partnership and communication
  5. To become a leader in environmental sustainability across the HE sector
