The University is committed to improving staff knowledge and understanding of sustainability.  To do this, we are carrying out a consultation to better understand the “needs” across the whole institution and this survey forms part of that consultation.

We aim to gather information which will help us to develop a programme of training and support that meets the needs of all staff at the University of Leeds.  It will help us to understand what topics we need to build capacity in, who needs training or other support, and where there are gaps.

Thank you very much for your time, we really value your input.  The survey should take about 10 minutes for you to complete, and all responses are anonymous.  If you would like more information on how the data will be used, or other ways to get involved please sign up for the Sustainability Newsletter or get in touch at sustainability@leeds.ac.uk.

What is the University doing about the Climate Crisis?

In September, the University of Leeds confirmed its role as an international leader in climate research and innovation by releasing its 7 bold principles to address the climate crisis. This includes divestment from traditional use of fossil fuels, a commitment to a 2030 net-zero carbon footprint target, and a drive to achieve no direct carbon emissions by 2050.

What is the Climate Plan?

The Climate Plan is an operational action plan that will guide staff and students on delivering the 7 Principles. As well as net-zero by 2030, we’ll encourage net-zero where we have influence, use research to find solutions and ensure our students can learn about the climate crisis. View the draft plan below. The plan is currently being finalised for launch in March 2020.
