Sustainability & Environment at LSTM

Sustainability & Environment at LSTM

LSTM is a centre of research excellence on global health challenges that affect some of the most disadvantaged communities in the world, and given our mission, we have an obligation to advocate for change and be a leading force in the fight against climate change.  

Our policy on sustainability and environment can be accessed here and the infographic below illustrates some of our key targets. This policy is reviewed and updated annually.

We are a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact and details of how we are supporting the Principles in the areas of Human Rights, Labour, Environment and Anti-Corruption can be found here.
