The Group sees a clear role for itself to contribute to achieving sustainable development in the Higher Education (HE) sector in Greater London and in particular in contributing to achieving HEFCE's vision which the Group shares :

The Group aims to do this by:

Promoting the principles and practices of Sustainable Development (SD) within Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) via support to its members on a range of issues specified in the Terms of Reference. Identifying and sharing information from members and relevant partners to support the Group aims, including the potential for collaboration with relevant partners, potential funding and events of interest Raising and maintaining awareness of the potential for Greater London HEIs to contribute to SD amongst all Greater London HEIs, and with all their stakeholders and wider where appropriate.
