OnGen for Universities & Colleges
If you are reading this web page, the chances are you have some responsibility for getting your university or college towards your net-zero carbon target.
A report by The Climate Commission, published in 2020, encouraged the further and higher education sector to set ambitious net-zero carbon targets.
The Climate Commission, a unique partnership between Association of Colleges, EAUC - The Alliance for Sustainability Leadership in Education, GuildHE and Universities UK, is coordinating action across the further and higher education sector to produce a clear, consistent and cohesive response to the climate emergency ahead of COP26.
Their recommendation is that universities should declare a climate emergency and set “challenging targets” to reach net-zero emissions by 2030, or 2050 at the latest.
The report goes on to say that to reach net-zero emissions by 2030, universities should lower and eliminate greenhouse gas emissions, consider onsite renewable energy, carbon capture and battery storage, and switch to zero-carbon energy suppliers.
It is all very well setting these ambitious targets, but where do you start? How are you supposed to achieve them?
