  • The environmental impact of Students Unions
  • Our membership
  • 233 Unions 137 shops and 426 bars
  • 80 do not pay for utilities (44 we know of do)
  • Through audits we found 324k savings through no
    or low cost actions approx 12 of utilities.
  • Energy / water data from 22 separately metered
    unions. Average 624 t/CO2/year. 12 75
    t/CO2/year.
  • 233 members x 624 t/CO2/year 145,000 t/CO2/year
  • 233 x 75 17,475 t/CO2/year being wasted!!

8
  • The Carbon Academy

638-850 tCO2/year (15-20)
Objective Reduce carbon footprint of student
union movement by 4 over next three years (5,500
tCO2)
30 SUs 7.5-10 1,594-2,125 tCO2/year
50 SUs 3.5-5 1,771-2,361 tCO2/year

  • The Challenges
  • Most not metered
  • Rapid turnover of management
  • Limited knowledge
  • Limited resources and competition for time
  • The Positives
  • Common opportunities
  • Keen to be green
  • Sabbatical officers bags of enthusiasm
  • Competitive spirit
  • Close-knit community

    practice
  • Switch on / off? Bye Bye Standby? Set point
    temperatures? E-cubes? Fridge location /
    condensers? Standby? Running costs?
  • Focus on CCE equipment Postmix, chiller
    cabinets, dairy decks, vendors.
  • Also other equipment Other chiller cabinets,
    dairy decks and vendors games machines passport
