Dear students,

We know that more of you than ever expect your university to be actively incorporating and promoting sustainability. Here at Cambridge we are continuing to listen, learn and act, which is why we're delighted to share the University's latest Environmental Sustainability Report with you all.

In a year like no other, we still have plenty of progress to report on thanks to people like you who have been part of creating a sustainable university. You can watch a video of our highlights or find further information in the full 2019-20 report. 

Happy reading!

The Sustainability Team
