2021 is a crucial year for global action on climate and biodiversity, and the University of Oxford is also stepping up its ambition and action. Recently, the Council approved the Environmental Sustainability Strategy for the University, setting the dual targets to reach net zero carbon and biodiversity net gain by 2035.
On 7 May the Vice Chancellor, Professor Louise Richardson, will launch the University’s Environmental Sustainability Strategy and will discuss next steps with other members of the University and the wider community. At the same event, the annual Oxford Networks for the Environment lecture, given by Professor Yadvinder Malhi, will set out how Oxford’s research is contributing to addressing global environmental challenges. There will also be a briefing on the ambitious new Oxford Net Zero programme, by the newly appointed programme lead, Professor Sam Fankhauser.
Join our event to hear about the bigger picture of the University’s role and commitments, the Environmental Sustainability Strategy and the following steps to achieve its goals, and how it contributes to local, national and global goals through its research teaching.
The event is hosted by the Oxford Networks for the Environment (ONE), the University’s Environmental Sustainability team, Oxford Net Zero and other partners.
