Carbon Trust certificate
19 January 2011
LJMU’s efforts to reduce its carbon emissions have been recognized by the Carbon Trust.
Ian Webster and Bob Steventon from Property Services recently accepted a certificate from the Carbon Trust on behalf of the University during an event in London. The certificate was presented by Michael Rea, the Carbon Trust’s Chief Operating Officer.
LJMU was one of the first universities in the UK to achieve the Carbon Trust Standard – the world’s first carbon award for organisations making real year-on-year reductions to their carbon footprint.
Ian Webster said: “Our goal is for LJMU to become a low carbon university and this endorsement proves that our strategic approach to carbon management is not only helping reduce our environmental impact but is also generating real cost savings as well.”
LJMU plans to cut its carbon emissions by 25% by 2015 and the University is calling on all staff and students to play their part in achieving this ambitious target. For details on how you can get involved in the Getting Greener campaign, visit: www.ljmu.ac.uk/prs/greencampaign
