In one of the most challenging years, both for LSBU as an institution and for the global community, we remained committed to delivering sustainable work and to make good on our promises. Under this umbrella of sustainability, both humanity and organisations have a role to play in protecting our future and ensuring the capacity of the biosphere. Across our organisation and individual teams, our incremental changes can add up to create big differences, ensuring future generations are able to meet their own development needs.
Despite COVID-19, LSBU has thrived across a number of projects in 2020. Here is a selection of our achievements, allowing us to look back while we look ahead.
We hosted the Sustainability and Climate Energy Series. Drawing over 2000 attendees, we had 150 experts and guest speakers, as well as audience members from Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, North America and South America. These three events covered topics as far reaching as fashion, economics, food and water and illustrated the importance of sustainability for an institution like LSBU.
And we planted 2150 trees - one for each attendee!
