The Climate Emergency Group was formed in 2020, with the remit of deciding whether the University should declare a climate emergency, and if so, how to respond to it.
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, Sustainability, Estates and Campus Services, Finance and Trades Unions. There is also support from an external consultancy for technical expertise on carbon management. The Group is chaired by Monica Illsley, Chief of Staff.
