How Green is your University?

As reported over at Elemental – Using 8 criteria, universities have been ranked on Environmental performance.

Universities in the North West (Salford Lancaster  UCLAN ) are all in the must try harder category, with Manchester in the fair, but could do better group

What is interesting is the % of energy that come from renewables, the % of waste recycling and the carbon emissions per head.  UCLan for example score 0% on renewables, 8% of waste recyled but have a reaonably good 644kg CO2e per head.

The top green university was Leeds Met

Makes you think – when will we see a similar ranking of construction or FM organisations?
