Universities and colleges can play their part in decarbonisation through research, learning and teaching, knowledge transfer, the student experience, community engagement, and business interface. Low carbon campuses using effective utilities management are the foundation upon which institutions will realise this crucial role as global leaders in sustainable development. The built environment in which our researchers, educators and students engage with the social responsibility and sustainability agendas should reflect the ambitions of an institution and contribute to the aims and objectives of a Sustainable Development Strategy.
