大学宣布 气候紧急 2019年7月. 2020年9月，大学行政部门批准了一项新的 可持续发展战略2020 - 2030 which reviewed the carbon journey since 2008/9 baseline – pages 14 &15-基于1的投影.该大学的目标是气温上升5度 to reduce its direct 和 indirect GHGe emissions to be net zero by 2030 from a new baseline year 2018/19， 16-19页.
- 5% p.a. 减少范围1、2的碳排放 & 3，对比2018-19年的基线，从2020年到2030年;
These targets will secure a 50% reduction in emissions from the 2018-19 baseline in a 1.升温5度情景. 到2030年实现净零排放, the remaining emissions will need to be balanced with carbon removals, 例如在管理的林地植树, managing university l和 for maximum soil health 和 carbon sequestration. 冰球突破将为行业自主的碳抵消计划做出贡献.
Annual quantitative 和 qualitative targets are set 和 the sustainability budget identifies specific projects to be achieved throughout the year. 请参阅冰球突破的 2022-23年可持续发展目标.
Carbon reduction projects completed this year include expansion of our PV capacity by 201% by extending PV on 3 buildings increasing capacity by 272 kWp. Projects to be completed by March 2023 include installation of Building Management System (BMS) 和 smart LED lighting totalling £1,076,628.
Non Carbon Quantitative 和 Qualitative 目标 for all areas
Performance against our overarching carbon emissions targets. The University measures 和 reports on carbon emissions in three ways:
范围1 & 2020-21年间，绝对排放量* (tCO2e)减少了13% & 2021-22 with a decline of 15% from the baseline year 2018/19. 参见图1. 绝对值, the University’s energy consumption of natural gas 和 electricity decreased from 16,2020/21至14年为380MWh,2021-22年达到561MWh, representing an 11% absolute decrease in energy consumption during the period. To achieve Net Zero against carbon emission targets, energy will need to reduce on average by 8.与2018/19基准年相比增长4%. 供暖/燃气碳排放基准年数字为1,782 CO2e will need to reduce an average of 149 GHGe tonnes per annum during the life of the strategy. 电力碳排放基准年数字为1,398 GHGe will need to reduce on average of 117 GHGe tonnes per annum. 气体, 冰球突破在挣扎, but this has been driven by increased ventilation requirements with COVID, requiring more energy to heat the rooms to acceptable temperatures while remaining well ventilated. 电力冰球突破表现良好，使用量减少, 和 an ever-growing suite of PV installations across the university. 这一年变暖了，气温下降了14%.
Fleet carbon emissions increased 80% from last year; but 47% down from our baseline, 2018/19, 主要是受新冠疫情后回归“正常”的推动
2. In relation to the number of students 和 staff at the University (tCO2e/FTE 和 kWh/FTE)
There has been a 6% decrease in the number of students 和 staff full-time equivalent (FTE) since 2018/19. In 2009-2010, the University had a space energy intensity of 288 kWh/m2 GIA which reduced to 156 kWh/m2 GIA in 2021-2022, representing a 46% improvement indicating carbon reduction measures implemented throughout the estate are working.
3. In relation to university buildings – floor space (tCO2e/sqm 和 kWh/sqm))
There has been a large 14% increase in the size of the estate gross internal area (GIA) m2 since last year 和 a 15% increase since the base year. This is driven by the recognition of Berrows house of which refurb/construction is being finalised, 加上收购塞文校区的其他场地. 这些其他地点大部分预计将被拆除, pending construction of 2 new teaching buildings in the upcoming years. We have 93,575 square metres of floor space on 3 major campuses.
Scope 3 emissions* have Increased by 35% since last year but reduced by 1% from the base year (2018/19). This is due to much restoration of travel activity following Covid for business use. 员工和学生的通勤情况一直很好, 在年度旅游调查中报告了非常好的数据. Waste has seen a minor increase with more campus activity as the campus has become more active following COVID. 采购出现了大幅增长, 在重大资本项目的带动下, 即新医学院的建造/翻新, 计划明年开业. 采购排放使用HE部门计算 HESCET 工具
