Measuring scope 3 carbon emissions in the Higher Education (HE) Sector.

Impact

The consumption-based methodology developed in projects can now be applied to other Higher Education Institutions in England to gain a better understanding of their major greenhouse gas emissions and the actions.

Impact indicator

Environment and informing public policy in the Higher Education sector through HEFCE.

Research which led to impact

Carbon footprinting at DMU (2010) and in the HE sector (2011) by ARUP and DMU.
