In 2020, The Royal College of Art, the world’s leading arts university, placing number one in the QS World Universities rankings1 still doesn’t publish an annual sustainability report. Yet there seems to be a large interest in the issue within the student body.
We’ve decided to take it upon ourselves and create the first-ever Sustainability report of the Royal College of Art, it presents the organisation's values and governance model and its commitment to a sustainable global economy. Our investigation into RCA’s sustainability procedures brings awareness and transparency to the university’s state of unforthcoming affairs. In February 2020, a letter2 was sent to the vice-chancellor Paul Thompson’s office inviting him to the exhibition (Eco)logical sense where the report was to be exhibited for the first time, the invitation was subsequently declined3.
