As a global university, we have an important role to play in promoting sustainability, both locally and internationally, and a duty to nurture our resources – human and physical.
Sustainability is embedded in everything we do, whether that is teaching and research or the services we offer students and staff. We are continually reducing our carbon footprint and are helping to support the government's carbon emission targets for Scotland.
Increasing constraints on resources requires us to be more efficient and effective than ever before. We recognise that the best way of securing our future is by being effective, agile and resilient; by identifying and seizing opportunities; and by focusing on what we do best and delivering.
Our CHP facility is reducing the University’s annual carbon emissions by around 2,800 tonnes – that’s enough CO2 to fill 3,000 hot air balloons!Lewis Mathews Senior Maintenance Manager More case studies
