The situation has become so dire that the UK government is now taking action. Last month, Prime Minister Boris Johnson declared a new ambition to ‘build back greener’ and reduce the country’s emissions by 68% by 2030. This includes plans to cut university emissions through improved energy efficiency measures, renewable energy sources and other behavioural change initiatives

The universities must also act quickly if they are going to meet the targets set out by the government. Many have committed themselves to ambitious carbon reduction pledges and are already looking at ways of improving their sustainability strategies, such as switching from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. However, more can be done on an institutional level for universities to reach their ambitious goals. The UK government has recognised this and has provided university staff with the means to help. The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is offering a range of grants and support services specifically designed to help universities reduce their carbon emissions. From energy efficiency initiatives to advice on renewable energy sources, these funds can make all the difference in assisting universities to reach their climate goals.
Universities must take advantage of these resources offered by the government if they are going to hit their ambitious targets. We have already seen too many UK universities failing to meet their carbon reduction commitments – now is the time for them to step up and do everything possible to protect our planet for future generations.
Concrete action is needed from universities to reduce their carbon footprints and support the UK’s ambitious climate targets. With government grants and assistance on hand, universities have never had a better time to make the leap towards greener practices. It’s up to them to take the lead in tackling the climate crisis – so let’s hope they rise to the challenge.
The UK government has set an ambitious target of reducing emissions by 68% by 2030. For this goal to be met, universities need to do their part by taking concrete steps towards reducing their carbon footprints. This includes switching from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources, improving energy efficiency initiatives and adopting other sustainable behaviour changes across institutions. The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has made available a range of grants and support services to help universities achieve this, so now is the time for them to take advantage of these resources and ensure they are doing their part in tackling the climate crisis. With collective action from universities across the UK, we could soon see dramatic reductions in carbon emissions – which would be an incredible win for our environment.
So let’s hope that all UK universities rise to the challenge and do everything they can to reach their ambitious carbon reduction targets. By taking advantage of government grants and assistance, they can ensure they do their part in protecting our planet for future generations. Together, let’s ensure UK universities hit these critical climate goals.
