Our Carbon Footprint

Our University is currently at 40% and have a programme of works to push us over the 50% saving, and be one of the first universities to cross this ambitious target. And the uniersity carbon league table puts us at 9th meaning we are already high performers, we are pushing to get right to the top.


Here are some of the things that our university works on:

  • Smart Grid – an evolution of our current electrical grid, using new technology to optimize the conservation and delivery of power
  • Shared District Heating – realising bigger efficiencies by working with other major local employers
  • Renewable Energy Generation – getting the most from low and zero carbon energy
  • LED Lighting and other ultra-efficient technology use
  • Composting
