Matthew Arnold has reduced campus carbon emissions by 3,691tCO2 (-17%), reduced water usage by 1,300m3/day
(-56%) and improved the University’s environmental impacts by leading the Green Impact scheme, reviving the Environmental Forum and increasing student engagement. He has achieved this in three years working for a unique partnership within an established, prestigious University.
Matthew instigated a number of projects which will commence this summer, including: upgrading 27,000 bulbs to LED lights campus-wide; improvements and additions to the current Building Energy Management System; smart sub-metering of all utilities for all campus buildings; installing 3,144 solar PV panels by October and supporting the Sussex Roots allotment and RE:Cycle abandoned bike recycling scheme.
Top 3 learnings:
1 Utilise the equipment you already have (improve operation and performance).
2 Grow your presence within the University (share successes and drive cross-University forums).
3 Set incremental targets, maintain focus on them and always look for opportunities that will help get you there.
CO2t savings over the life cycle of the project:
3,691tCO2 (Actual since May 2014, 3 years)
