University of Worcester takes big step towards sustainability target

A £2m Green Asset Finance fund has been agreed with Barclays, as the uni bids to become carbon neutral

The University of Worcester has been given a £2m boost in its bid to become carbon neutral.

Following an agreement with Barclays, the Green Asset Finance fund will go towards campus-wide LED lighting, electric vehicles, charging points and solar panels.

“We work hard with our staff, students, governors and the wider community to look at ways to reduce our impact and to encourage more sustainable ways to live,” said the university’s director of sustainability, Katy Boom.

The institution was named ‘Sustainability Institution of the Year’ at the 2019 Green Gown Awards.
