Halve peak emissions by 2030

Introducing our new carbon target: Halve peak emissions by 2030

In the face of an escalating global climate crisis, the University has created an ambitious new carbon target to halve peak emissions by 2030. 

Our new target is based on years of practical experience of what's possible, and we are confident we can meet the challenge.

We have already achieved a lot and many more changes are on the way. For example, we have moved to the Passivhaus approach to design more sustainable buildings, increased our focus on behaviour change through initiatives like Green Impact and Student Switch Off, and we are targeting big emissions sources by hiring a specialist project manager to lead on reducing the environmental impact of the University's labs.
