Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing the world and universities and colleges have a major role to play in tackling it through research, learning and teaching, knowledge transfer, the student experience, community engagement and business interface. Low carbon, 21st century campuses, delivered through 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.
