Our focus starts with ambitious shifts within King’s. We are working to embed sustainable practices and principles of environmental stewardship in every aspect of university life. Through our research, we are generating evidence-based solutions to environmental challenges and building cross-disciplinary partnerships.

A thriving and sustainable planet is a central focus for impact at King's. By prioritising this objective, we’re mitigating further harm to the environment and enhancing resilience and adaptability in the face of a rapidly changing climate. We’re shoring up water resilience for at-risk communities. Developing international alliances for climate projects. And steering policy at the highest levels of government.
