Public Sector Carbon Management – Further Education

Salford City College was established on the 1 January 2009 as a result of a merger between Eccles, Pendleton and Salford Colleges. The new College is a major employer in the city of Salford with a staff of over 1,000. The mission of the college is “to inspire and empower people to create and take opportunities to enrich lives through learning”.

The college has also created a partnership with Salford City Council to help develop the climate change strategy – “Creating a City Prepared for the Future.

Participating in the 10-month Carbon Trust Public Sector Carbon Management Programme prepared the college to embed carbon management into their organisation and develop a comprehensive carbon management plan, setting out a roadmap to achieving cost and carbon reduction targets.
