The University of Plymouth has declared a climate emergency, joining an international movement aimed at taking action on climate change.

“Achieving net zero emissions is essential, but adapting to future climates is also crucial. As a university, we must get our own house in order in terms of carbon emissions and we are doing so. At the same time, we are committed to transforming lives and responding to the climate emergency and generating the knowledge and skills that will drive future adaptation and sustainable living are at the heart of our mission.”
