The University aims to construct high efficiency buildings, which adhere to the principles of the Passivhaus methodology. You can find out more at Sustainable Buildings.
What is your building's carbon footprint?
Find out with our emissions map (accessible through Single Sign-On). The carbon footprint for each building is visualised as a square. Carbon emissions are based on how much energy is used in the building. The bigger your building’s square, the more carbon it emits. Some buildings are much bigger than others so, to keep things fair, the emission map also shows the emission density per m2. The darker the colour, the higher the building’s emissions per m2.
Most of the laboratory buildings have a high carbon footprint and a high emission density. You can find out how to be more sustainable in your lab by visiting Sustainable Laboratories.
