Declaration of climate emergency

In October 2017, the University of Glasgow signed the Sustainable Development Goals Accord. This committed us to combatting poverty, inequality, climate change and environmental degradation, and to promoting peace and justice.

In May 2019, in response to a call from the Environmental Association of Universities & Colleges (EAUC), we made a formal declaration of climate emergency and pledged to achieve carbon neutrality by a specified date. To support this work, we commissioned consulting engineers to review our current position and advise on next steps.
