The Carbon Management Plan for 15th of May

College commits to 25% energy reduction

Sussex Downs college has commited to 25% energy reduction (electricty and gas) over 5 years. Since the Principal signed the Green Colleges Declaration sustainability is becoming increasingly integrated into all aspects of college life, and there are many exciting staff initiatives which support this.

Senior management are currently working in partnership with The Carbon Trust to design and implement a five year carbon reduction plan.

Over the summer, a whole site energy assessment has been done, with a specific focus on electricity and gas consumption. The aim is to reduce our consumption by 25% over a five year timescale.

Estates staff will be running several projects aimed at reducing energy consumption. This includes attaching energy saving devices to fridges, assessing in an evaluative fashion of use of light bulbs and various other energy saving measures.
