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.

Steps we are taking to meet our targets
