Environmental and Sustainability at DCG

Derby College Group (DCG) recognises that climate change, now being referred to as The Climate & Nature Crisis or The Climate Emergency, is one of the most significant global challenges of the century.

As one of the largest further education colleges in England, with nearly 14,000 students, DCG stands shoulder to shoulder with other organisations willing to take the urgent action required of us to cut the use of carbon and carbon embedded products and resources.

The Climate Change Act 2008 now demands urgent and tangible action to combat the environmental and climate crises we are facing. The bill sets long-term, legally binding environmental targets providing a strong mechanism to deliver long-term positive environmental outcomes.
