Read the Carbon Management Plan here.
The University of Stirling recognises the environmental impacts arising from energy consumption and waste and is committed to tackling climate change by embedding sustainability at the core of its business practices. We are working on putting sustainability and carbon reduction at the heart of our policies, strategies, plans and projects. Examples where this has been applied include the Estate Strategy, Sustainability Policy, Campus Active Travel Initiative and a range of practical energy saving projects as part of general maintenance, capital projects and dedicated energy projects.
We are looking to specifically focus on carbon reduction through a University wide initiative and enhance existing practices.
The success of reducing our Carbon footprint depends on everyone doing their bit. There are already a number of projects underway to reduce carbon emissions such as improved heating controls, lagging of pipework, improved energy efficient campus lighting, and more ideas are being evaluated.
If you have any ideas on how to reduce our Carbon footprint please let us know by emailing the SEC team.
