The Climate and Ecological Emergency Advisory Group (CEEAG) was formed in 2020, with the remit of deciding whether the University should declare a climate and ecological emergency, and if so, how to respond to it. In December 2020, we made our declaration of a climate and ecological emergency, and now we are working to deliver our most ambitious Sustainability Sub-Strategy and Climate Action Plan to date.
Membership is from across the University, with the intention of being representative of the community; this includes individuals from the Students’ Union, People and Culture, Research, Education, Academic Faculty, Sustainability, Estates and Campus Services, Finance, and Trade Unions. There has also been support from an external consultancy for technical expertise on carbon management. The Group is chaired by Chris Oldham, Deputy Registrar (Infrastructure and Environments).
