Our sustainability plan

Following a thorough process to review and define sustainability at Pearson, we launched our new sustainability plan.

This ‘2020 sustainability plan’ challenges us to maximize our contribution to the delivery of quality education for all and the creation of a better, more sustainable world.

Our 2020 plan is built around three core pillars:

These three strategic pillars are intended to inform and integrate all of our business activities. We will continue to build and implement the strategy for delivering on these pillars, which will help us embed sustainability throughout our business, and guide us as we move to a more rigorous and transparent approach to reporting.
