It is that time of the year again that we all look forward to celebrating Easter with our friends, families, and loved ones, which means that our campuses would become less active. See how this affects and involves you.
It is that time of the year again that we all look forward to celebrating Easter with our friends, families, and loved ones, which means that our campuses would become less active. We see this as another opportunity to significantly reduce energy wastage across our campuses.
We are aware that the energy used across our campuses accounts for 76% of our carbon footprint and our greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions and GHG are the causes of climate change. As part of our commitment to respond to the challenges associated with climate change, we have over the last 18 months invested approximately £3 million on energy efficiency and carbon reduction projects across our UK campuses. These projects will contribute to the delivery of our six-year, 30% carbon reduction target and long-term net zero aspiration.
We are appealing to all members of our community (staff and students) not to be by-standers in the collective fight against climate change. Therefore, as part of our preparation for the Easter closure, we should all ensure that by close of business on Thursday 14 April 2022 that:
The reason why we are appealing to everyone to be involved in our “Easter Switch-off” campaign is because climate change is the greatest threat to the environment and humanity. The projected impacts of GHG emissions continuing in the current trend across Europe are that by 2030:
Therefore, every action that contribute to reducing and eliminating energy wastage will certainly reduce the consequences of climate change.
