HUMANITARIAN RESPONSE RESEARCH
Ahead of COP26, we’re collaborating on an innovative research project with UK-Med and the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) at the University of Manchester, and with the support of the Disasters Emergency Committee, that aims to help those who deal with humanitarian crises prepare for the future. Find out more about the aims of the research.
MEASURING OUR IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT
Save the Children UK has measured the carbon emissions of our UK operations since 2011 and has publicly reported since 2013. To view these reports, see below.
In 2021 the global movement will review comprehensive emissions data and commit to reduction targets to continue this positive change. In 2020, Save the Children UK continued our work to make our head office heating, ventilation, air conditioning and lighting systems more environmentally sustainable. And we introduced new restrictions to our pension funds to exclude companies involved in the upstream (extraction) segment of the fossil fuel industry as well as any companies that derive more than 10% of their revenues from fossil fuel activity.
