Oxford SDG Impact Lab

Enabling students to collaborate with business in order to deliver sustainable development.

Real-world impact

Our approach integrates a 17-week training programme with a 4-week placement. The training equips students with the transferrable skills needed to lead transformative change in relation to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Our placements provide them with the opportunity to apply those skills to collaborate directly with organisations to deliver real-world change.

We’re so pleased to be joining forces with the University of Oxford, combining our deep industry expertise with some of the brightest minds in the country, to help us identify where we can have a real impact.
