Solar Panels on the Science Centre roof.
London Met has been widely recognised for its sustainability improvements over the past few years and the University has won numerous awards for its environmental performance. From being announced as the best university for carbon reduction in 2015 and 2017, to winning the Green Apple Awards 2018 and Camden and Islington Sustainability Awards in 2019, the University is always continually improving its sustainability efforts and looking for new ways to save energy to help the environment.

The University's environmental improvements are achieved by developing excellent working relationships with the infrastructure, projects and IT teams, implementing energy projects and creating a programme of behaviour change.
 
Initiatives include installing two beehives on the roof and introducing the Green Impact programme to staffdeveloping roof gardens. as well as installing 3,170 LED lights across the campus and 221 solar panels on the roof.

By developing new initiatives and continuous collaborative work between students, staff and our key stakeholders, London Met has reduced its carbon footprint by 78% during 2019-20 from a 2009 baseline figure and met the 2020 target four years early.

This year University is setting new and ambitious targets to reduce our impact on the environment even further by developing a new Carbon Management Plan.
