Tackling climate change and improving health
As a global research and education institution we recognise our responsibility to generate evidence and empower future health leaders. We also recognise that in doing so we have an impact on the environment. We aim to continually expand our understanding of the impacts of climate change on human and planetary health. We are taking significant steps to ensure this impact is mitigated with a plan to deliver our mission in a sustainable way. We aim to embed sustainability and move towards net zero in all our operations, policies, decision making and infrastructure improvements.
LSHTM is a signatory of the Academic Health Institutions’ Declaration on Planetary Health.
