Sustainability

Sustainability

At Cambridge Assessment learning and education are at the heart of what we do. We also have a responsibility to the planet and to the communities we serve and we play a crucial role in supporting learners and teachers worldwide.

As an international exams group, we seek to increase knowledge and understanding of environmental and sustainability issues through the research and development of curricula, educational programmes and assessments for learners around the world. We're also dedicated to making a difference through our global operations. We are proud signatories of the United Nation's Global Compact - the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative. We support the compact's 10 principles on environment, labour, human rights and anti-corruption.

Cambridge Assessment is committed to human rights, not because we must but because it is the right thing to do. We treat everyone with respect and dignity. This commitment is not just about the health and wellbeing of our colleagues but even more so of that of the teachers and learners we work with around the world.
