The University of Edinburgh is a world-leading research-intensive university situated in Scotland, UK.

Established in 1583 by the local town council, the University places special importance on working with communities near and far to make the world a better place.

Edinburgh recognises the climate crisis as one of the most significant global challenges for society. Through a ‘whole institution approach’ it combines strengths in research, teaching, operations and innovation to form partnerships with communities, businesses and governments worldwide, delivering low-carbon, inclusive and equitable solutions where they are needed most.

The University’s progressive Social Responsibility and Sustainability department supports these collaborations whilst also delivering impactful sustainability programmes on campus to make measurable change and inspire the University’s own community to take sustainable actions in their work and studies.
