Head of Sustainability, Charles Joly, 020 7106 3746, CLM 4.11

Leads the sustainability team overseeing the implementation of strategy and delivery of services across campus and residences.  

Policies and decision-making

More about our Head of Sustainability

I lead the Sustainability team, 6 of us altogether. The team works hard to improve the environmental performance of LSE and embedding sustainable practices, working closely with staff and students. I engage with a varied range of stakeholders across the School to raise the profile of sustainability, and ensure I gather diverse views to inform our approach. 

I am responsible for the delivery of the sustainability programme, ensuring the School sets itself suitably ambitious targets and coordinating delivery.

In my spare time I enjoy DIY, indoor climbing and the great outdoors (walking, cycling, kayaking and more).




Residences Sustainability Officer, Dan Reeves, CLM 4.11

Embeds sustainability across LSE’s managed halls of residence.  

• Reduce the Juice in halls 

• ReLove in halls

• Sustainable Projects Fund 

More about our Residences Sustainability Officer

I work with the eight LSE-managed halls to embed sustainability within them. One of the largest engagement programmes is the University of London’s “Reduce the Juice” (nothing to do with drinking!) which is a friendly inter-hall competition to save ‘Energy’, ‘Waste’ and ‘Water’. 

I am also heavily involved with working with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) on the end of year ‘Relove’ collections, where we divert items that may have been thrown out to the BHF. Last year this totalled 9.6 tonnes or items worth around £16,800 for BHF! 

I get to work on a really diverse range of projects within sustainability, and one of my favourite aspects has to be biodiversity in the form of the LSE Bees!
