Send in your proposals for the ring-fenced carbon project budget

(8 February 2012)

We have been given a £100k ring-fenced budget for carbon saving projects in the University. This money is a product of the finance related to energy savings.

This money will be given to the Carbon Management Team every year to help identify additional carbon savings in Departments and Colleges, moving us closer to our carbon reduction targets as set out in our Carbon Management Plan. This is a revenue fund so it can be spent on anything from training or publicity materials to timer switches or solar panels.

Ideas to save carbon in your Department / College may have been highlighted in your 'energy walk-through' or during the 'environment' agenda item in your team meetings.  We realise that many of the ideas to save additional carbon cannot be funded so this is a great opportunity to help your Department / College reach our 30% carbon reduction target by 2013/14.

This first £100k must be spent in this financial year so we are asking for project proposals now. Please bid for some of this money using the project template on the Carbon Management Projects web page, providing as much information as possible and then send it to All bids will be assessed by a sub-team of the University's Carbon Management Team.

Have something to include?

Please liaise with the designated contact for your department or college. For further guidance, email
