New report on sustainability and ESG

The latest report in our ESG Ignite series, Interpreting the ESG acronym has recently been published and includes a number of voices from different sectors, including from sustainability leads in the higher education sector.

Martin Priestley, our Head of Education comments:

“UK universities and all those working within the education sector share a deep commitment to sustainability and ESG. There is a desire to behave as responsible Global Citizens and to demonstrate to their communities, students and staff that institutions are passionate about behaving responsibly. There is a real willingness to communicate their progress openly and to be held to account by stakeholders. We see more and more that ESG is really embedded successfully in governance.”

A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the report, including:

  • Karl Letten, Environmental and Sustainability Manager, De Montfort University
  • Dr Victoria Hands, Director of Sustainability, Open University
  • Joanna Chamberlain, Director of Sustainability, University of Exeter
  • Alistair Lomax, Director, Arc Universities Group
