Emissions calculator scoops top sector award

An emissions calculator that quantifies the climate impact of the University's domestic and international student travel has won a prestigious sector award.

Rose Lyne (Net Zero & Emissions Manager) and former undergraduate intern Estrid Jonsson (UG Engineering) from the University's Estates & Facilities Sustainability team picked up the Higher Education Strategic Planners Association (HESPA) Innovation Award at a ceremony in London.

The emissions calculator the pair developed enabled the University to quantify the climate impact of domestic and international student travel for the first time.

Their work, initially undertaken to address the University’s internal need for robust data on this emissions source, was so well received by the sector that it was subsequently developed as a best practice tool in partnership with the EAUC (The Alliance for Sustainability Leadership in Education) and has been shared with the UK sector and beyond.

The tool will have a significant impact in the sector, providing institutions with a simple but robust method of calculating one of the sector’s most significant emissions sources.

Estrid is now advising an organisation based in Australia who are looking into similar issues.
