Further Education Roadmap

Climate change and ecological destruction are some of the biggest challenges of our time. Colleges, like all institutions, have a responsibility to address them; and to meet the UK government’s target to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

​Further Education Roadmap

There is currently a great deal of variation in how colleges are responding to the climate crisis. Some are leaders in this area, with clear sustainability strategies. Others are approaching the issue for the first time. All have a significant opportunity, to build upon the energy of their students and their close ties to their local communities to reduce their environmental impact in innovative ways.

The Climate Commission for UK Higher and Further Education was established in November 2019. Its goal is to develop a strategic, sector-wide approach to tackle the climate emergency. The roadmap is based on a range of existing materials, including the EAUC’s ‘SORTED: Guide to Sustainability in Further Education’, the Sustainability Leadership Scorecard, the Climate Emergency Framework, and past winners of the Green Gown and AoC Beacon Awards, among others. It is also based on a workshop with FE college leaders and students, held in June 2020

Greener Solutions Group can work closely with Further Education Colleges to guide them through the necessary steps for following the roadmap, and provide platforms, reports and plans to help them on their journey.
