Carbon management plan 2010/11 to 2020/21

The University’s carbon management plan outlines the University’s strategic approach to carbon emissions reduction through improved energy and water efficiency, greener procurement, more sustainable travel and improvements to waste management over the period. It also details the key reduction measures required and a proposed implementation process to realise the reduction targets.

The plan commits the University to a target of a 29% reduction in carbon emissions by 2020/21, from the baseline year of 2005/06.

The carbon management plan sets out a framework which:

  • Establishes the University’s baseline carbon emissions
  • Defines the scope of carbon emissions included within the plan
  • Sets targets for reducing carbon emissions
  • Details an initial set of carbon emissions reduction  projects
