The report showcases the University’s sustainability achievements during the last academic year and outlines where the University is contributing to the United Nations sustainable development goals.
The University is pleased to announce that the we achieved a further 4% reduction in our carbon emissions, contributing to a collective 51% reduction in carbon against our 2010 baseline.
We also installed two new 50 kW solar arrays on the roof of Senate House and International Hall, enabling International Hall to derive 3.4% of its total energy demand from the sun.
We also had an excellent year in regards to water, saving a total 29,000m3 across our entire estate – which is enough water to fill 11.6 Olympic sized swimming pools.
It was an equally positive story in regards to waste, with the University reducing their annual waste volume by 1,126 tonnes.
