Nottingham success in green technologies awards
Date:2/10/2011

duction of a range of initiatives including green gardening practices on its award-winning parkland campuses, the use of innovative architecture and sustainable design in building new facilities, reducing the environmental impact of its IT use and introducing sustainable procurement practices into contracts with a growing number of major suppliers.

Staff and students have been encouraged to make their own pledge to becoming more eco-friendly through a University-wide Go Greener campaign, whether it be by reducing their carbon footprint by switching off PCs or lights when not in use or leaving their car at home and using public transport and the University's own fleet of inter-campus 'hopper' buses with new lower-emissions diesel engines.

As part of its measures to reduce its carbon footprint, the University recently unveiled plans for three wind turbines on land close to the River Trent, near Clifton Bridge in Nottingham, which, if approved, would supply green electricity directly to its University Park campus. The turbines, which would meet one-third of the electricity needs of the campus, would reduce the University's carbon emissions by 7,000 tonnes per year, equating to 40 per cent of the target reductions required by 2015.
