LSE and the environment

Since 2005, LSE has committed to acting responsibly to minimise its environmental impact as stated in its Environmental Policy. The Environmental Policy aims to:

  • Reduce the use of natural resources;
  • Prevent the physical degradation of ecosystems;
  • Prevent pollution from emissions and discharges, in particular those that directly contribute to climate change;
  • Provide leadership in the field of sustainability;
  • Create a vibrant community in which staff, students and visitors have the opportunity to individually and collectively support the School in protecting the environment.

EcoCampus Silver Award sealThe School's Sustainability Team – together with staff, students and visitors – works to fulfil the objectives outlined in the Environmental Policy. In April 2010 LSE was awarded the EcoCampus Silver award for the Environmental Management System (EMS) the School has in place. Work is now underway to progress to Gold in 2011, and then to ISO14001. For more details on the LSE EMS and our EcoCampus award, please see the Environmental Management System| web page.

Further information on the School's environmental activities and on how staff and students can and do support the work of the Sustainability Team is available on the Sustainable LSE| web pages.
