Scope 3 – Travel
If you wish to join the Travel Scope 3 Sub-Group please contact us.
- We are working with The Roundtable of Sustainable Academic Travel in making a tool which allows institutions to enter all staff travel - from suppliers such as travel agencies, taxi companies etc. as well as expense forms. This converts into a carbon equivalent. The tool is able to report on departmental levels as well as on an individual level which can be crucial for behaviour change as well as analysis of where improvements and changes can be made. We aim to pilot the tool with University of Leeds, University of Manchester, University of Oxford, University of Sheffield, University of Bristol and Lancaster University over the coming months. Following a successful pilot we will roll this tool out - free to use - for the sector. You can see an example of the tool at https://businesstravel.sustainability.ed.ac.uk/. This work is currently on hold whilst we seek funding for this.
- An overview of travel emissions from Scotland institutions (which makes up 20% of all emissions) is available here.
