This presentation on 'Embedding Carbon Management within Public Sector Organisations' was given as a morning workshop at the EAUC-Scotland Conference 2015 by Jenny Cassells, Sustainability and Climate Change Officer for Keep Scotland Beautiful's Sustainable Scotland Network.

Session Outline

Carbon management (CM) is sometimes viewed as a conceptual approach to environmental and energy management that lacks a practical element. This can be due to a range of issues such as lack of embedded procedures, competing priorities and leadership issues. However, CM is evolving and organisations are making the concept their own. This presentation focuses on how this is happening within higher and further education, and includes a first-hand perspective from both a college and a university working to make their plans and strategies relevant to all.


EAUC-Scotland held their third conference on the 17th November 2015, sharing examples, ideas and opportunities for Colleges and Universities working to develop and promote sustainability within their institution.

The conference theme, A Shared Responsibility, highlighted that for effective change sustainability action is not only needed by estates teams, but also academic and support staff, senior management and students, and requires engagement with local and national partners and other further and higher education institutions.
