At Imperial, our vision is to realise a sustainable, zero pollution future. As one of the world’s top universities, Imperial College London has the power to help make that vision a reality.

Safeguarding our planet and the health of future generations requires us to look not just at a single problem, but at the big picture. That’s why we go beyond carbon to consider human-made pollution in all its forms – from oil spills and ocean plastic to toxic air and heavy metals accumulating in our environment.

Ending human-made pollution cannot be achieved in siloes. We advocate for a holistic, joined-up, collaborative approach to the problem globally, and embody this in our own operations too. 

We embed a consistent and credible commitment to sustainability into all our work - from our world-leading research and education to how we run our campuses and interact with industry. 

We leverage the full strength of our influence as researchers, educators, innovators and investors to find meaningful solutions across the board.

We use our convening power and our relationships across industry, healthcare, government and civil society to accelerate a just and equitable transition to zero pollution.  

We deliver evidence-based solutions, embrace new technologies, challenge conventional thinking and open new debate, driven by our commitment to solving this urgent and complex challenge.
