Sustainable development

Our vision is that, within the next 10 years, the HE sector in England will be recognised as a major contributor to society's efforts to achieve sustainability - through the skills and knowledge that its graduates learn and put into practice, its research and exchange of knowledge through business, community and public policy engagement, and through its own strategies and operations.

HEFCE activity on sustainable development

We have contributed to the HE sector’s response on sustainable development since 2005.

We have developed our own strategies and are supporting the sector to reduce carbon emissions in line with the sector target, set out in our carbon reduction target and strategy for HE.

We have provided funding through the Revolving Green Fund that aims to help higher education institutions (HEIs) in England reduce greenhouse emissions.

HEFCE's internal operations

We are also continuing to embed sustainable development within HEFCE
