Sustainability at Pearson
Today’s learners are the architects of tomorrow. By enabling better learning for all and helping to remove barriers to education, we empower learners to be their best selves and, in turn, build a better life for themselves and those around them.
Our 2020 Sustainability Plan
We believe that quality education is the key to shaping a better tomorrow. It can create better lives for individuals, greater equality within society, and a more prosperous, sustainable world. Now more than ever, the world needs everyone to be a lifelong learner.
Reduced environmental impact
We met our goal to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 50% from a 2009 baseline.
Supported gender equality
We released our first gender pay report in the United Kingdom and continue to work towards our target to report in other geographies.
Tomorrow’s Market Incubator
We funded and coached employees to develop new business models that support underserved learners through the Tomorrow’s Market Incubator, and reached over 650,000 learners in 6 countries through Pearson Affordable Learning Fund (PALF) portfolio companies.
