The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is renowned for its research, postgraduate studies and continuing education in public and global health. Their mission is to improve health and health equity in the UK and worldwide; working in partnership to achieve excellence in public and global health research, education and translation of knowledge into policy and practice.
As a global research and education institution we recognise our responsibility to generate evidence and empower future health leaders. We also recognise that in doing so we have an impact on the environment. We aim to continually expand our understanding of the impacts of climate change on human and planetary health. We are taking significant steps to ensure this impact is mitigated with a plan to deliver our mission in a sustainable way. We aim to embed sustainability and move towards net zero in all our operations, policies, decision making and infrastructure improvements.
At the Centre on Climate Change & Planetary Health, we work to prepare governments, academia, health systems and citizens for a new era of public health: one that can embrace and contend with the realities of the Anthropocene.
