UA institutions play important role in action against climate change

Some of the world’s most influential leaders are convening in Cornwall this weekend for the G7 summit, with discussions on combatting the climate crisis high on their agendas.

With this in mind, we’ve pulled together some of the ways that Alliance institutions are instrumental in the UK’s response to the climate crisis, and how work in sustainability, green growth and innovation are making a difference on both a local and national scale.

Through our focus on applied research, knowledge exchange and innovation, we are working towards ensuring a fairer, greener, healthier, more prosperous, and resilient UK.

Championing green innovation, sustainable business practise and growth within the communities of our Alliance institutions allows for the creation of a more flexible and sustainable job market. This gives our graduates and local communities the chance to engage with a more green economy and fight climate change in a way that is more accessible, and right on their doorstep.
