Strathclyde is committed to sustainability and climate action across the Higher Education sector. To achieve this, we aim to:
- tackle climate change and reduce resource use
- be socially responsible
- collaborate with others
- share learning and knowledge to help ensure continuous improvement
These goals are exemplified by us being awarded Cycle Friendly Campus, Green Tourism Silver Award and the Soil Association Bronze Award.
Combined Heating & Power
With support from Scottish Government funding, we recently completed the installation of a state-of-the-art combined heating and power system. It allows Strathclyde to generate up to 50% of its electricity on campus and use the resultant heat produced to heat campus buildings.
Cycle friendly campus
To promote active travel and limit emissions produced by transport, cycling infrastructure has been invested in throughout campus including two cycle hubs in the Royal College Building and Collins Building and more than 100 new bike parking spaces.
Following the launch of a fleet of five electric vehicles, several charging points are being installed throughout the University estate.
