1.5 Degrees - An International university rankings based on sustainability

In partnership with Students Organising for Sustainability (SOS), the 1.5 Degrees initiative aims at creating a 'ranking'to draw attention to climate indicators and the actions (or lack of these) by renowned universities around the globe.


The 1.5 Degrees alternative league table is a global ‘worst’ ranking of the top universities, assessing just how badly they are preparing graduates for a 1.5oC future. We have assessed the world’s top 20 universities on how their Engineering, Law, Economics, Politics and Health courses – traditionally highly desired subjects for the people that go on to become decision makers – align with the actions needed to tackle the climate emergency and ecological crisis.
