WINNER: Change Possible: Action for a zero carbon UCL by 2030
University College London’s (UCL) Positive Climate campaign is a sector-leading commitment to become a carbon-zero institution by 2030. We are an energy and research intensive university, operating across ~250 sites. The campaign will deliver a paradigm shift in the way we operate as an institution. By combining a people-centric approach with data driven insights, we are empowering our staff and students to be part of the change; for instance, through innovative dashboards and carbon awareness programmes that draw on latest research by UCL’s behavioural scientists.
Information and nudging is backed up by robust action; this includes improved estate management and £1.25bn investment to deliver zero carbon buildings by 2024, a roadmap to be powered by 100% UCL owned renewable energy by 2030, and innovative programmes to tackle scope 3 emissions. UCL’s climate action programme is already set to deliver 25,000 tonnes CO2/year savings, improving air quality, and saving money.
As part of our commitment to embed sustainability across our teaching, our programme will also become a demonstrator, inspiring other institutions and our students to see how a zero carbon future is not only possible but healthier, happier and more equitable.
