Our Vision

The University of Copenhagen has ambitious goals for sustainability designed to make UCPH one of the world’s most sustainable universities. “Green Campus 2020: A Strategy for Resource Efficiency and Sustainability”  includes several environmental goals, including specific targets for energy and CO2 reductions:

  • 71 percent reduction of carbon emissions per student/employee
  • 35 percent reduction of energy consumption per student/employee

UCPH’s Holistic plan for Campuses and Buildings focuses on sustainable development and use of the university's buildings and facilities through 4 initiatives:

  • Continued energy optimisation of buildings and energy-friendly operations
  • Imposed use of sustainable materials and solutions in a lifecycle perspective in construction and maintenance projects
  •  Measurable overviews of the University’s total climate footprint and resource impact in campus and operational plans
  • Intensified use and sharing of areas.

We can work together towards a sustainable UCPH in 2020
