Net Zero Carbon Pledge

The EAUC have declared a Climate Emergency.

We are calling for all post-16 education institutions and support bodies in the UK and Ireland to declare a Climate Emergency and to commit to the Committee on Climate Change’s recommendation to adopt as a minimum a 2050 net zero emissions target. We will collate the education sectors response to this and send to UK and Ireland Governments to lobby them to act and show the impact and leadership of our sector on this crucial agenda.

We are asking institutions and sector agencies to pledge to net zero emissions. Please contact us to share your pledge.
