Climate Emergency Declaration
We have a responsibility to help combat climate change and the University of Warwick is now declaring a state of Climate Emergency.
However, declaring a climate emergency must be matched with ambitious plans and goals. The University is aiming to reach net zero carbon from our direct emissions and the energy we buy by 2030.
Climate Emergency Task Force
The Climate Emergency Task Force was formed in response to the Climate Emergency Declaration made in September 2019.
Five subgroups were created to identify key changes that can be made across the University. They are integrating the UN Sustainable Development Goals into solutions and projects.
Carbon emission targets explained
Action to achieve Net Zero carbon emissions by 2030 is well-advanced. Discover more about Warwick's assessments and performance, and find out what Net Zero really means.
UN Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were introduced in 2015 as a 'blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all'.
There are only ten years left to achieve the goals and large organisations such as Warwick have an important part to play.
We aspire to do better for our immediate surroundings, for our people and for the world. The University of Warwick has multiple policies covering everything from our Carbon Management Plan to how we deal with waste.
