HE Climate Action Toolkit

The Climate Commission for Higher and Further Education Students has created a Higher Education Climate Action Toolkit.

With 91% of students being fairly or very concerned about climate change it is essential university executives take action seriously to meet student needs.

The first of its kind, the Toolkit identifies HE-specific critical elements Vice-Chancellors and Governors should consider in order to advance sustainability and respond to the climate crisis.

The critical elements identified in the toolkit will support universities to:

  • Prepare staff and students to cope, thrive and move responsibly in a changing world, for example equip students with employable skills
  • Protect biodiversity
  • Work toward climate and social justice
  • Lower and eliminate scope 1, 2 and 3 greenhouse gas emissions
