A Green GSU

At GSU we are committed to minimising our impact on the planet and maintain sustainable practices in everything we do

In October 2019, The GSU Student Assembly voted to ask the University to declare a climate emergency and for the University and Union sustainability strategies to consult with students in the process of creating them.

This call to action aims at encouraging the University to take action and speed up its efforts at becoming carbon neutral (having no carbon footprint often through carbon offsetting). Henry Setter (GSU President) has since met on numerous occasions with the University Sustainability Team.



A message from the GSU President


“Young people are leading the way in the conversation of climate action and environmentalism, GSU’s members are passionate about doing their bit and GSU supports them to make their change. After all, we want to empower students to change the world and have a great time at Greenwich”.

Henry Setter
GSU President 2019/20
