Sustainability at London Met

London Met is committed to continue reducing its environmental impact and to use resources in an environmentally sustainable and responsible way.
We recognise our role in leading carbon reduction both through the management of our University and through our education, research and wider role within society.
Minimising our environmental impact delivers benefits not only for our institution, but also the local community and wider society.
We're proud of our environmental achievements to date through reducing our carbon footprint by 50 per cent during 2015/16 from a 2009 baseline figure, meeting our 2020 target four years early. We are keen to expand upon this success and are currently setting new targets to achieve.
If you'd like to get involved or seek our support please don’t hesitate to contact us.
