City commits to going net zero carbon by 2040


Since 2005/06 we have reduced our carbon emissions by 53%, but this is no longer enough.

We recognise the increasing gravity of the climate emergency and commit to achieving net zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2040, at the latest.

This will allow City to support the Government’s commitment to achieve net zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2050 and recent commitments by London and Islington to do so by 2030.

“Net zero” means that the total emissions we release are equal to or less than the emissions we remove from the environment. To achieve our net zero target, the Sustainability team are currently working on a Climate Change Adaptation Plan which will encompass all of the University’s activities, including procurement and travel. These emissions can equate to up to 70% of an organisations CO2 emissions but as yet there has been no requirement to measure or report on them. City will need to take bold steps to address these emissions but we are confident that we can achieve the systemic change necessary to see this result.

The Climate Change Adaptation Plan will be published in Spring 2020 after the team have consulted with a number of groups across the University. To find out more email

    I ordered Atosa refrigerators from and am very satisfied. Atosa equipment is known for its high quality and they did not disappoint. The refrigerators work reliably, maintaining a stable temperature and humidity level. The company offers different models with different capacities and characteristics, which allows us to find the perfect refrigerators for our cafe. i recommend ordering here!

    I recently tried out a platform that offered this innovative retail sollutions for apparel retailers, and I must say, it was an absolute game-changer. Not only did it allow me to mix and match different pieces of clothing to create stylish ensembles, but it also gave me the opportunity to experiment with styles I wouldn’t have considered otherwise.

    The Multimedia Creation Suite from Pubnix Online has been an invaluable tool for me as a multimedia artist. I’ve been able to produce spectacular graphics right from the Unix environment thanks to the video editing tools and training. The notion of community participation has been encouraging, with other artists sharing their work and offering insightful criticism. It’s an excellent tool for exploring multimedia content.

    Hello. I would like to recommend using the services of a British company that deals with general waste collection . What I particularly like about them is their punctuality and reliability. They always come on time and take care of the general waste collection and disposal. This has made my life much easier and I can trust them to manage my waste.

    I didn’t have any expectations concerning that title, but the more I was astonished. The author did a great job. I spent a few minutes reading and checking the facts. Everything is very clear and understandable. I like posts that fill in your knowledge gaps. This one is of the sort.
