The British Institute of Facilities Management held its annual awards ceremony this week, and the University won one of five Impact Awards for our 'Impact on the Environment'.
The award was issued in recognition of our Carbon Management Programme, which delivers the University’s Carbon Management Strategy.
The University set an ambitious target to make significant cuts to the University’s carbon emissions - 33% by the end of 2020 from 2005/06 levels. We have already saved an estimated 6,256 tonnes of CO2 and £1.5m of annual energy costs. Over 205 completed projects include solar photovoltaic systems, lighting upgrades, building management system optimization, building system upgrades and roof insulation.
