Our research in 2015 found that 44% of students, student officers and staff surveyed believed the UK Government is not taking a lead in addressing climate change and 62% thought that the government is not doing enough to encourage the use of renewable energy.
We also know that 74% of staff and students think that their university should buy renewable energy, and 57% agreed that their university should make a commitment to being powered by 100% renewable energy.
As a result, we are supporting the movement of investments from fossil fuels into renewables. We're not going to allow any new dirty investments in coal, tar sands, oil or gas. We're going to buy and generate loads of wind and solar energy.
We're going to co-create the just and equitable future we want to see.
