Net zero investments: a guide for universities

24 June 2024      Joni Rhodes, BUFDG Project Manager

We recognise the sector has a role to play in the UK's net zero journey, and that today's students seek meaningful commitments from their universities in all areas of their operations. Universities have a unique opportunity to address the climate crisis through research, innovation and education – but they can also use their investment assets and endowments. Whilst many universities have set a net zero target, only a small proportion currently include their investments in that target.

To help universities align their investment strategy with their climate ambitions, we have worked in partnership with Cazenove Capital to publish Net zero investments: a guide for universities, a report drawing on findings from university survey responses, focus groups and case studies to share useful data and insights, practical and applicable guidance, and five key steps to consider when setting a net zero investment strategy. This will be useful to any university looking to decarbonise their investment portfolios and use their funds for good. 

We will be joining Cazenove to discuss the report’s findings in an online webinar at 3pm on 4th July. Register your place here.
