Campus Sustainability Plan
The University's five-year plan details a coordinated suite of emission reduction projects that will help foster a cultural change towards long term, environmentally responsible decision-making, where sustainability is embedded into campus life.
More than $12m will be dedicated to carbon emission reduction projects, including efficient lighting retrofits, mechanical equipment upgrades and installation of solar PV. Complementing campus infrastructure improvements, are strategies relating to sustainable procurement, staff and student engagement, training and skills development.
