Climate Change Adaption

As a public body, the University of Glasgow has a legal duty under the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 to address our changing climate and take adaptation measures to ensure that our estate is resilient in the future.  We have developed a Climate Change Adaptation Plan, which describes the various measures we will take, in this regard.

It should also be highlighted that the University cannot hope to safeguard its future climate resilience by working in isolation.  While it is important to ensure that our own estate is in order, we must recognise that we do rely heavily on a number of external organisations for a variety of business critical services (e.g. energy and water supply, transport services and ICT networks).  Thus, we are also committed to working in wider partnership, as part of the Climate Ready Clyde initiative, in order to deliver a well-adapted city region.
