Concerns Raised Over St Andrews Accommodation
10th Dec 2018
After completing a large programme of improvements, The University of Lincoln has been granted ISO 50001 accreditation - an international energy waste and efficiency accreditation that has been awarded to only a select few higher education institutions.
The award comes after a year of upgrades to the university's air conditioning, ventilation and heating systems. The university also created a new Carbon Management Policy, which along with the improvements will guide the university as it attempts to cut its carbon emissions by 43% by 2020 (taking 2005 as a baseline).
To achieve ISO 50001 accreditation, institutions must "establish, implement and maintain their energy systems to improve performance, efficiency and consumption to minimise energy wastage, reduce overall energy consumption and as a result, reduce their carbon footprint."
But last year's improvements are not the end of the University of Lincoln's plans. With its 2020 target in mind, the university is looking to switch to renewable energy provider Smartest Energy. Once this takes place, all electricity across the university's Brayford Pool campus is planned to come from renewable sources.
