The University promotes sustainable travel for students, staff and visitors.
Transport-related carbon emissions are the second largest contribution to the University’s total carbon footprint. Many travel carbon savings have already been achieved. The Travel Plan has identified many new activities to help us achieve the following targets. We are working with an EU funded campus sustainable mobility project U Mob and have this agreed action plan to help decarbonise travel. There are further details in our Mobility Plan. Read about an example of a new pedestrian and cycle route and EV charging installation of 100 chargers.

Our current targets and some examples of how we are going to achieve them can be accessed through the sustainability targets document.
