Towards carbon neutrality in 2035


The goal for 2020 – reducing the university’s CO2 emissions by 20% compared to 1990 – has been achieved and even exceeded. We thus set the following goals: a 60% reduction by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2035, by migrating the necessary energy-generation balance towards renewable sources. These complex challenges require a multipronged approach focusing on operations, investments, optimisation, and even behaviour.

The decision to engage in energy transition has led the University and its Facilities Managment Administration (ADPI) to establish an ambitious, multicampus, and plural energy strategy. The overall logic applied is based on the négaWatt vision of achieving an energy-environmental optimum in three stages: consume less, consume better, produce better.
