At Cambridge Assessment, we recognise that there is a climate emergency, and we believe that we have a responsibility to our learners and our people to address it.

We are taking active steps to reduce our environmental impact and are committed to achieving carbon zero across our operations by 2048. This is a complex journey and it requires ambition, the use of industry-leading environmental stewardship and leadership at all levels. This is why our commitment to environmental sustainability is a core part of our strategy. For more information on our Environment Strategy, please visit

  • Resources, Food and Waste
  • Energy
  • Travel and transport
  • Digital sustainability
  • Educational products


Green Impact Scheme

We participate in the Students Organising for Sustainability Green Impact Scheme and currently hold the Gold Award. Our Green Impact team engage with staff and promote environmentally and socially sustainable practice within the organisation.
