The London School of Economics (LSE) published its first Environmental Policy in 2005. Since then, the School has come a long way on its journey to embed sustainability in all aspects of the School’s day to day life.
Becoming ISO 14001 certified in 2012, the School has achieved zero waste to landfill, reduced energy intensity per m2 by 19% and has 34 departments actively participating in reducing its environmental impacts. Collaboration between departments has led to sustainability themed lectures and assignments; also the award winning ‘LSE 100’ course, which includes a lesson from Prof Stern on tackling climate change.
