Net Zero 2025 

The University is accelerating its carbon reduction commitments with an ambition to deliver net zero emissions for direct emissions by 2025 (scope 1 & 2). Alongside this, it is working with partners across Plymouth to develop a city-wide collaborative approach to delivering net zero for indirect emissions. Our plan is to power down on energy use, switch to alternative fuel sources and collaborate for innovative solutions. 

Top 3 learnings:

  1. Create the freedom for the team to come up with new solutions.  
  2. Working with local consultants who know the campus engineering to identify potential solutions. 
  3. Strength in numbers, businesses across the city coming together to develop cross-city plans.
