Birkbeck, SOAS and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine have a joint sustainability team dedicated to enhancing environmental improvements across the three partners. The team is funded by the three partners and the budget is agreed on an annual basis based on the projects under development and other marketing, awareness raising and training needs. The sustainability budget is stable and the partners ensure that it contributes to enhancing improvements across the institutions. In addition to this, the partners ensure that they allocate budgets to their estates and maintenance teams for sustainability projects, i.e. the carbon management plan implementation.
