Unis action on climate change urged




A recent survey carried out on Opinionpanel's Student Omnibus reveals that students want their universities to take more action to tackle climate change.

The research was covered in a release by the Press Association which begins:

Students want their universities to take more action to tackle climate change, a survey has found.

Three quarters of students (74%) would like their university to have the Carbon Trust Standard to prove it has taken action.

Almost half (47%) would like their institution to do more to help them reduce their own carbon footprint, according to the survey, which was commissioned by the Carbon Trust.

The Carbon Trust Standard is an independent body that certifies organisations that have genuinely taken action on climate change.

Five universities have been awarded the mark so far, after collectively reducing their carbon footprint by 6%. More universities are now applying for accreditation, the Trust said.

It marks a step change for the sector, with universities now keen to show they
are reducing their emissions year on year.
