Climate plan process

Initiatives have been launched to reduce the University’s carbon footprint, but we still do not have all the answers. The answers must be found in cooperation with staff and students, e.g. through research, projects and master’s theses.

In addition, the University’s campuses have a large flow of students, staff and guests that visit on a daily basis. Without the participation of these groups, it will be difficult to meet the goal.

Therefore, as an organisation, a place of study and workplace, SDU has a great responsibility to support climate-friendly behaviour and make it easier for the University’s users to make climate-friendly choices on campus.

The climate plan will therefore be drawn up with contributions from research environments at SDU, through the involvement of other employees and students at SDU and submitted to the Central Liaison Committee, the University Council and representatives of students for hearing.
