The Carbon Programme Group

To meet our ambitious goals, it is essential that the whole NTU community is engaged as set out in the NTU Carbon Roadmap. We have established a Net Zero Carbon governance structure tasked with implementing projects across four workstream areas to deliver the necessary carbon reductions. These workstreams are Energy and Water, Transport and Travel, Supply Chain, and Partner Accommodation.

The groups work together to plan ambitious actions that will reduce emissions across all areas at NTU. These workstreams report to a dedicated Carbon Programme Group, consisting of expert representatives from Academia, Research, Professional Services, NTSU and the student body, and is chaired by the Director of Estates. Progress is reported to senior leadership.


The Carbon Programme Group works towards the Embracing Sustainability theme in NTU's Strategy 'University, reimagined' which states: By 2025, NTU will be…” recognised as the most environmentally responsible University in the UK”. Part two of the theme details that NTU  "will set and meet specific and challenging targets for reducing our environmental footprint and ensure our campuses are exemplars of sustainable practice".
