Global climate change is recognised as the key environmental threat facing the world. This, along with the volatility of energy prices, HEFCE sustainability policy and carbon reduction targets, Government policy and student pressure is driving the University to reduce carbon emissions.

University of Salford is one of 33 Universities taking part in Phase 6 of the Higher Education Carbon Management (HECM) programme run by the Carbon Trust. With the support of this programme, we have recently launched our Carbon Management Plan to define how we will work towards our target of a 30% reduction in carbon emissions over 5 years based on 2005/6 emissions.
