Our ambition: carbon zero by 2030

The UK Government has committed to achieve net zero emissions by 2050; aiming to improve the environment within a generation and leave it in a better state than we found it.

Gloucestershire College pledges to become carbon zero much sooner than this. We are the first college in the country to drive decarbonisation; aiming to deliver net zero campuses by 2030 and operate renewably and responsibly across our three campuses in Cheltenham, Cinderford and Gloucester, including our resources, facilities and transport links.

We are committed to engaging and educating our staff, students and the wider community on the importance of acting now for climate change, and how we can all work together to help save our planet.
Matthew Burgess, Principal at Gloucestershire College

The world is changing dramatically. Climate change is affecting every country on every continent. People are now experiencing the impact of human activity and rising greenhouse gas emissions, which are at their highest levels in our history.
