We are supporting 10:10|, an international campaign to reduce carbon emissions by 10 per cent in 2010. We have reduced our emissions by 10 per cent since 2005 and, with a concerted effort, hope to make the further 10 per cent reduction by August 2011. You can find up-to-date information on current energy use across DMU buildings|.

As part of Degrees Cooler, the Green Impact scheme allows staff to 'green their workplace' by completing a number of environmental activities including saving energy and making smarter travel choices|.
Last year, 13 teams across the university took part and this year we are aiming for even more.
