Universities Tooling up on Sustainability

Universities are key to providing exemplary performance in sustainable research, education and facilities management.

This is the philosophy that surrounds the United Nationals Environmental Programme’s (UNEP) Greening Universities Toolkit, which has a goal to transform universities around the world into viable green, sustainable campuses. It is also a perfect fit with the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were the focus of the September UN General Assembly meeting in New York, where the ratification of the Paris Agreement came nearer into being.

University of Cambridge: We can’t ignore our own carbon footprint

Four years ago when the University of Cambridge introduced its first electric vans – two Renault Kangoo ZEs to be used by its postal service – its estate maintenance staff didn’t believe the day would come when they, too, would be sitting in electric vehicles.

Although most of their journeys are short distances within the city boundary, making them suitable for an electric vehicle’s range, they have to carry tools and equipment to service the estate’s grounds and 365 operational buildings, and the Kangoo ZE’s payload could not match the equivalent diesel van.
