Cranfield University will receive a £3 million donation over the next three academic years to develop the next generation of leaders committed to creating a sustainable planet, and support research and business initiatives focused on tackling climate change and achieving net zero.

The donation has been provided by Green Future Investments Ltd (GFIL), an organisation established to continue the environmental work and legacy of entrepreneur and ex-IBM engineer Brian Meredith.

GFIL’s focus is in innovative and technological organisations or projects which seek to tackle the challenges arising from climate change. Partnering with Cranfield University in a multi-faceted programme, a series of donations will support students, staff, alumni and research projects focused on sustainability and green initiatives.

Cranfield University’s Professor Chris Fogwill, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the School of Water, Energy and Environment, said:

“This investment will unlock huge opportunities for so many. It is a significant step in our ambitions to create solutions that will help us create a more sustainable world through innovation.”
