Building a sustainable future together

Climate change, energy supply and affordability, biodiversity, and reduction in global resources will impact future generations. With your support, we'll continue to stand up and fight to make a difference.

Our targets

Immediate action is needed if the world is going to address the climate emergency. That's why it's important to us to set ourselves ambitious but achievable targets.

Our targets

Our new sustainability plan is designed to embed sustainability into everything we do.

We aim to achieve net zero carbon on Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2038/2039 and Scope 3 emissions by 2050/2051.

We've already reduced our operational carbon emissions by 62%.

Kingston University has a zero waste to landfill policy in place where we're working around the clock to prevent and reduce waste production in all areas of the University.

We're on track to achieve the Fairtrade University Award 2022.

Our talented Fairtrade Award team continuously focus on embedding Fairtrade within our curriculum, procurement and research in line with the criteria set by the Fairtrade Foundation.

Degree apprenticeships

Our apprenticeships focus on work-integrated learning, developing professional knowledge and skills that you and your employer need.

You'll have the opportunity to obtain a recognised degree from Kingston University while you continue to gain practical experience in your workplace, allowing you to earn while you learn.

You'll also get to apply everything you've learnt in the classroom to real-life situations at work.

The cost of an apprenticeship is covered by your employer, which means you won't pay any tuition fees.

What's more, you'll get all the support you need and benefit from the expert teaching at Kingston, alongside your paid work, giving you the best of both worlds.
