Sustainable Travel Roadshow – Monday 20 December 2021

November 30th, 2021

Join an online event for all staff in Registrars and HR chaired by Professor John Atherton, PVC and Dean and Chair of the Environmental Sustainability Committee, to understand the contribution that university travel makes to our overall carbon emissions and how we can reduce its footprint.

Monday 20 December 2021, 12.30pm-1.30pm, Online event.

Whilst travel is an important mechanism to enable university research, work, collaboration, and opportunities abroad, it has a significant environmental impact. The university is therefore exploring opportunities to transition to more climate-conscious travel.

  • Should we ban domestic flights?
  • Should we introduce explicit targets for university travel?
  • Should there be departmental CO2 budgets?

If you would like to attend this event, please register via this form. A Teams link will then be sent to you nearer the time.

You are also invited to submit in advance any questions you may have in advance. Questions on the day will also be welcome.
