New green strategy puts UCPH in the sustainability Champions League
GREEN CAMPUS The University of Copenhagen has set out ambitious new targets for sustainability designed to make UCPH one of the world’s most sustainable universities. With “Green Campus 2020: A Strategy for Resource Efficiency and Sustainability” the university has taken a big step towards meeting new environmental goals, including specific targets for energy and CO2 reductions.
Goals to be achieved through systemic solutions
By focusing on systemic solutions, the University of Copenhagen will be an international model for sustainable universities. UCPH must collaborate with other ambitious universities such as those in the IARU, use the best experiences, and help improve sustainability in universities around the world through knowledge sharing. UCPH focuses on:
Sustainable physical environment: buildings, facilities, technology and infrastructure.
Development and demonstration of the sustainability solutions that UCPH itself researches and teaches. UCPH should be a living laboratory for the development of tomorrow’s sustainability solutions.
A sustainability culture in which all staff and students encounter and practice sustainable behaviour in their everyday life. Sustainability and resource efficiency should be integrated efficiently and meaningfully in the organisation and management of the university.
We can work together towards a sustainable UCPH in 2020
