How Nottingham College is working on it’s sustainability
Becoming Carbon Net Zero for Type 1 & 2 Emissions. Changes have been implemented over the last few years that have enabled the college to significantly reduce these types of emissions from 3238.53 tCO2e in 2018/19 to 2055.81 tCO2e which equates to a 37% reduction (3% off the 2025 target).
Measures are currently in place that will create this 3% reduction assuming consumption of electricity and gas does not increase. Achieving a further 60% reduction will require significant changes to our estate’s infrastructure including:
- The retrofitting of buildings ensuring heat and electricity use is optimised
- Further decarbonising our energy supply
- Ensuring efficient utilisation of space across campus
The college has adopted the AOC ‘s FE Climate Action Road Map which sets out a series of logical steps a college can take to aid their journey in becoming a more sustainable organization. The college is making excellent progress on this journey.
Work is well underway on the production of the colleges first Sustainability Strategy and the linked Sustainability Action Plan. This strategy is to be published in March 2023. It will be brought to the Finance and Assets Committee for their approval prior to being published.
