I'm reading: Climate commitment

Climate commitment

The University of Leeds has fully divested from significant fossil fuel extractors and has set out seven bold principles it will adopt to help tackle the climate crisis. The principles have been approved by the University’s governing body, its Council, and outline the ambitious steps Leeds is taking to support the global transition to a low-carbon future. They commit to a 2030 net-zero carbon footprint target and a drive to achieve no direct carbon emissions by 2050. They also include a commitment to reorient research and teaching away from the fossil fuel sector over time.
