New £20m investment in carbon reduction

A £20m investment in carbon reduction for universities has been announced by Minister for Further Education, Higher Education and Science Shirley-Anne Somerville.

The Scottish Government-funded scheme is the latest in a series of investments by SFC designed to help Scotland achieve its ambitious greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets. These have included major contributions to the University of Strathclyde’s district energy scheme and the £25 million local district heating network at the University of St Andrews.

The Minister said:

“We’ve made bold commitments on reducing our emissions and this fund encourages and rewards the universities pushing the boundaries and making a real difference.

John Kemp, Interim Chief Executive of the Scottish Funding Council, said: “With the most ambitious carbon reduction targets in the UK, Scotland needs new and innovative approaches to carbon reduction. These new schemes show universities and colleges leading the way to a low carbon Scotland and protecting the environment for future generations.”
