Bradford UniversityAt the University of Bradford we recognise that to continue delivering excellence in our learning and teaching, research and knowledge transfer we need to ensure that our activities are conducted in an environmentally responsible manner. We are committed to sustainability, and have won recognition for our sustainable campus, and we are one of the world’s leading Ecoversities.

Our projects

Ecoversity – Embedding sustainable principles and practices across the entire institution and delivering a wide range of positive environmental impacts.

Successes and savings

  • 29% carbon reduction against a 2005/06 baseline

Difficulties

The University of Bradford is largely a City centre campus and 125,000 sqm in size consisting of mainly 1960s and 1970s buildings. Such a large portfolio of building of this nature presents a challenge to energy management.
