On 22 April - Earth Day 2022 - Dulwich Pudong was proud to participate in a groundbreaking event: the launch of the first EiM group-wide Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) Report.

The Report, which has been over a year in the making, for the first time publishes the key metrics which we believe are critical for measuring the social impact of our schools.

"Our purpose has always been to prepare the next generation for the future, and we believe defining and achieving our ESG goals are essential to this,” says EiM Founder, Chairman and CEO Fraser White.

What is ESG?

The Report identifies four pillars that encompass and guide who we are and who we aspire to be, as well as giving us clear metrics to define our progress along the way. They are:

  • Learning
    Meaningful and relevant learning that nurtures students as global citizens.
  • Planet
    Helping more and harming less, with sustainable and regenerative ideas and practices for the planet.
  • People
    Working together as a rich and diverse community for the benefit of all.
  • Policy
    Building the systems and strong organisational structure to support our collective ambition.

ESG at Dulwich Pudong

As the founding College of the Dulwich College International Group and one of the pilot schools driving the development of the group-wide ESG report, Dulwich Pudong is poised to take the next step by creating an ESG report specifically for our own College.

We have formed an ESG Task Force, led by our Director of Business Administration Angela Hencher, which draws together a diverse, multifunctional team of our staff, students, and parents.

"It's thrilling to be able to take the next step in the sustainability journey," Ms Hencher shares. "We already have considerable infrastructure and expertise in place at the College built up over the course of our 20-year history. Developing our own ESG Report will allow us to tie the strands together into a clear roadmap that engages our entire community in a common cause."


One of the tentpoles of the project will be fully mapping our carbon footprint along with implementing a plan to reduce and offset our carbon emissions so that we know everyday we are contributing to the global goal of preserving the planet. The results of this project will be published during the 2022-2023 Academic Year.

The creation of an ESG Report for our College also presents a uniquely valuable learning opportunity for our students. They will gain insights into the foundational concepts behind ESG, understand its significance for their current and future lives, and develop expertise in an increasingly important set of principles driving business globally.


"Sustainability is already deeply imbedded at all levels into the holistic education we provide," says DCSPD Director of Global Citizenship Anthony Reich. "Now being able to bring in the ESG Report will allow us to introduce a powerful new dimension through which we hope to achieve a whole new level of student engagement."

This process will provide our students with deep personal connection to and real-world examples of our mission to pioneer education for a sustainable future.

Says Shu Yong T, our Year 12 Sustainability Prefect, “I'm so glad to be at a school that strives to make a positive difference. Having it embedded within our curriculum, it's an incredible opportunity for us to contribute and promote beyond our academic learnings.”
