The University’s pathway to Net Zero carbon emissions
We monitor the carbon emissions resulting from Waipapa Taumata Rau’s operations. A total of over twenty five measures including purchased energy, fuel consumption, waste, and key activities such as work related travel are included in the monitoring programme. We also consider emissions from air travel our international students undertake when they choose to study with us in Aotearoa.
We record these emissions in the Greenhouse Gas Inventory following international standards ISO14064-1:2018 and once externally verified, we publish the full reports.
This information then helps us identify effective carbon reduction opportunities and include them in the Sustainable Estate and Operations Plan. This is how we track progress against the University's Net Zero Carbon targets.
