Students, staff, our local partners and the communities where we are based all have a stake in sustainability at Imperial and we are committed to working with them to drive change on the ground. We know from surveys that Imperial students, alumni and staff have high expectations of the College – particularly in implementing what we learn and teach, and in the way we operate our campuses – and our community are keen to support with action.
The London Boroughs of Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham, and Westminster are important partners in the management and development of our main sites and the links between them. We also share their objectives on many themes from tackling climate change and air pollution, to improving the quality of life of people living and working in the area and creating more opportunities for our local community.
Our many partners in business are also central to delivering our research and educational ambitions. Imperial is also part of the global community acting to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, which connect our research and teaching to action on the ground to tackle environmental degradation, poverty, inequality and lack of access to healthcare and education.
