Natural Sciences students in a lab
Undergraduate students Dario Mongiardi and Jedidiah Cheung from Team CleanSea working on their idea for the Faculty of Natural Sciences Make a Difference competition.

Our goals to demonstrate sustainability in practice and share our learning with the world focus us on the impact of teaching and research – the ‘handprint’ of Imperial that goes well beyond our operational footprint. Capturing and reporting the progress we are making through our core activities is more complicated, but our aim is to be more systematic and effective in harnessing the great research and teaching that goes on at the College in the quest for solutions to the challenges ahead.

The College’s Learning and Teaching Strategy sets out our commitment to ensuring that an Imperial education is recognised as globally outstanding in the fields of science, engineering, medicine and business, with a focus on the skills needed to address current and future global challenges. Our portfolio of sustainability courses is designed to equip our students with the knowledge and understanding to become leaders in their fields. We now plan to build on this foundation by making knowledge and skills for sustainability increasingly central to all learning at Imperial.
