DIUS and Sustainable Development

Message from Baroness Delyth Morgan

Baroness Delyth Morgan

The principles of sustainable development go straight to the heart of this Department's remit - investing in our future.

It is our role to ensure that all of our work - on further and higher education, innovation, science and technology, intellectual property, and supporting evidence-based policy making across government - supports our national prosperity and our national wellbeing both for now and for the future.

And we have a particularly strong role to play in confronting the greatest threat to our collective futures - climate change.

Our Sustainable Development Action Plan

The first DIUS Sustainable Development Action Plan (SDAP) is now available to view online. The plan is for DIUS staff, delivery partners and stakeholders and sets out the Department's overall approach to addressing sustainable development issues - including tackling climate change - through our work programme, our operations, our procurement processes and our people.

The plan is intended to give an overview of the variety of our activities in support of the sustainable development agenda and to highlight some of the key actions we will take over the coming year to strengthen our contribution.

To reflect the ongoing development of our sustainable development strategy, our SDAP will be published online only and we will work with the Sustainable Development Commission to develop and improve the plan.
