Bournemouth University’s Carbon Management Plan is a comprehensive programme of works aiming to meet the challenging 2015/16 target of a 30% reduction in absolute emissions from 2005.
Focusing on five key areas (improved data, small-scale reduction projects, major capital projects, sustainable construction and behavioural change); this ambitious programme has delivered significant carbon reductions and real improvements to the University’s staff and students, all this in the context of a modernising and developing campus.
Despite its capital developments, the Carbon Management Plan has successfully delivered projects to reduce its absolute emissions by 10.5%. Since the start of the programme in 2010, 47 projects covering all 5 key areas have been completed, reducing actual emissions by 1440 CO2.

A very good, broad programme of actions which has achieved a significant reduction in CO2e which was clearly quantified.
