Sustainability at UAL

Because the world needs a sustainable future.

New ideas and innovative thinking can help make sense of even the most complex issues. The global climate crisis has inspired many of our students to address sustainability through their work, and as a University we’ve placed the need to live and teach more sustainably at the centre of our mission.

In 2019, we were ranked 19th in the People and Planet Green League with a 1st class result. You can see the breakdown of our score on the People and Planet website.
