Environment and Energy


We are launching a new programme which focuses specifically on scientific research facilities

Scientific research accounts for the highest consumption of energy per mat the University, as research equipment can be very energy intensive. 

Green Labs seeks not to reduce the level of research, but simply to minimise its environmental impact where possible. This programme will allow the University to lead the way in terms of scientific sustainability and make a significant contribution in accordance with the Environmental Sustainability, Policy, Vision and Strategy.

What is a Green Labs Programme?

A Green Labs programme seeks to reduce the environmental impact and minimise the resource usage (e.g. energy, water, chemicals) of scientific research and its related activities.
