Climate Commitment

Shetland UHI take our responsibilities to creating sustainability and helping the environment seriously.

As one of the signatories of the Universities and Colleges Climate Commitment for Scotland (UCCCfS), we are committed to addressing the challenges of climate change and to investigating ways in which we can reduce CO2 emissions.

Shetland UHI is a member of Environmental Association for Universities & Colleges (EAUC).

We have also recently signed the Race to Zero pledge, where we join others in pledging to reach (net) zero GHGs as soon as possible, with mid-century at the latest. You can read more about the Race to Zero pledge here.

HISA and Sustainability

HISA's Student Partnership Agreement focuses on environmental issues across the Highlands and Islands Region.  

Instrumental to this is the Shetland Students' Green Team, who formed in 2019. 

The aims and objectives of the society are to raise awareness of environmental sustainability in and around the Shetland UHI campuses and to aid them in becoming more eco-friendly. 

Furthermore, the Society may organise meetings and lectures, training courses and events, build up equipment, collaborate with individuals, organisations and similar groups.
