A Sustainable Organisation

Our ambition is for UCIM to be net zero from operations after offsetting by 2026

UCIM Greenhouse Gas Emissions

UCIM measured its own greenhouse gas emissions for the UCIM Financial year 2022, one of the first departments at the University to do so.


UCIM’s emissions were 468 tCO2e, the vast majority of which were Scope 3 emissions, attributable to purchases of services and travel. The detailed breakdown of emissions provided in the report enables UCIM to review its procurement and travel arrangements, to minimise emissions in future. Data for the 2023 financial year has now been submitted and the report should be available in June 2024.

At the University’s Sustainability Showcase in June 2023, UCIM achieved Silver in the annual Green Impact Awards, reflecting the great efforts the team, led by Samantha Richards, Business Support Administrator has made to improve its own sustainability.

The team have submitted their 2024 application for Green Impact and hope to achieve Gold in the June 2024 awards.

Each summer, UCIM hosts two undergraduate interns from the University, who carry out independent sustainable investment research projects. UCIM also hosts interns from the 10,000 Interns Programme and GAIN (Girls are Investors).
