Col­lege sustainability

Not­ting­ham Col­lege is ded­i­cat­ed to becom­ing more envi­ron­men­tal­ly sustainable

Not­ting­ham Col­lege has a huge part to play in con­tribut­ing to the government’s tar­get of reach­ing net zero emis­sions by 2050, and we have a moral duty to do our part to com­bat the glob­al warm­ing crisis.

As defined in the Cli­mate Change Act 2008, we recog­nise our legal oblig­a­tion to become Car­bon Neu­tral (Net Zero) by the year 2050. Our Car­bon Man­age­ment Plan sets out the actions we plan to take and the tar­gets we have set to help us reduce emis­sions and con­sump­tion of resources.

Through work­ing with sus­tain­able ener­gy providers and com­ing togeth­er as a col­lege com­mu­ni­ty to edu­cate and devel­op sus­tain­able prac­tices, cou­pled with an estates strat­e­gy which aims to pin­point tar­get actions for us to reduce our emis­sions, we are com­mit­ted to become Car­bon Neu­tral by 2038 for direct emis­sions. Our tar­get sup­ports Not­ting­ham City Council’s car­bon neu­tral objec­tives, and we are imple­ment­ing a mul­ti-step pro­gramme and roadmap of actions to help us achieve this.
