The University of Cambridge has around 20,000 students and over 11,000 staff, an estate portfolio valued at over £1.7bn, a planned capital building programme worth £412m, and energy costs of £15m a year. This means that the University has a high environmental impact and large carbon footprint. The University is committed to continual environmental improvement, including an absolute reduction of its overall carbon footprint by 2020.
