The Royal College of Music has achieved first place for universities with under 5000 students in the 2022/23 People and Planet University league table.

People and Planet ranks UK universities based on environmental and ethical performance. They assess higher education establishments based on carbon emissions performance, resource usage, staff engagement and policy documentation. The league table is published annually.

This year’s People and Planet league also confirms that the RCM met the higher education sector emission reduction targets set in 2005.

The RCM is incredibly proud of this result which reflects an ongoing commitment to environmental and social sustainability.
