Our Low Carbon Campus Journey – Our Key Milestones
Our campus was an early adopter of the low energy/carbon agenda, with our low carbon campus journey beginning in the early 1990s.
Although the need to reduce CO2 emissions primarily became a focus for the HE sector after 2005, running an efficient and low energy estate has been a long-standing goal of ours. The challenges of operating a 1960s estate with poor thermal performance led us to develop a series of highly thermally efficient buildings, both to counter the original building stock and to ensure the estate as a whole was cost effective to operate.

A key part of our NetZeroUEA strategy will be delivered through the Campus Development Programme by improving the energy efficiency of the Lasdun Teaching Wall.
