Cutting carbon emissions

IMPERIAL College is helping raise awareness of the need to reduce carbon emissions by being named in an advertising campaign by the Carbon Trust.

The College is one of more than 100 named companies working with the Carbon Trust, an independent organisation set up by the government to work with business to cut carbon emissions and help meet international climate change targets.

The estates division has joined the Trust’s funded ‘bespoke partnership’ scheme, which funds consultancy involvement in identifying carbon reduction projects.

Imperial is named in an advertisement running in the national press which features a small boy jumping from post to post on a beach under the headline ‘When he’s a dad, all companies will cut CO2’.

Phil Evans, energy manager, explained: “Reducing carbon emissions from College demonstrates our commitment to reducing our own environmental impact while lowering energy bills.

“More money will be available for the core business of the College — research and learning, as a result.

“We will also be able to fund more energy-saving projects, while making a strong ethical stance.”
