Explore how we aim to reduce the environmental impact of our campus and facilities to increase energy efficiency and reduce harmful emissions that have a huge impact on the planet.

Our objectives

  • To reduce the environmental impact and costs arising from energy use in buildings through the better management of resources and increased energy efficiency, and reduce emissions from fuel consumption by our vehicles, as well as meeting the requirements of legislation.
  • Take a whole-organisation approach so that carbon reduction becomes embedded in management decision-making across the full range of the University’s operations, and by undertaking projects that will lead directly to measurable emissions and energy consumption reduction.


  • Edge Hill University will become carbon neutral by 2030.
  • Review pool fleet options with a view to introduce lower emission vehicles – end of 2025.
  • Edge Hill University will reach Net Zero by 2035.
  • Emissions and discharges to be audited through carbon reporting via a third party – ongoing target to be reviewed annually, to next be reviewed in February 2025.
