Nottingham Green Partnership’s annual review out now
The past year saw a number of city-wide achievements which have led to Nottingham being internationally recognised as one of the world’s leading cities for climate action. Both of the city’s universities have been rated among the top five most sustainable universities in the world, and funding from the UK Government has allowed the City Council to improve the energy efficiency of nearly 1,000 homes in Nottingham.
Members of Nottingham Green Partnership have also made huge achievements between 2022 and 2023, including:
- Browne Jacobson, a solicitor’s firm, introduced an electric vehicle scheme as part of their employee benefits package
- Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust are replacing all windows at Queen’s Medical Centre and installing a new low energy heating system to be completed March 2025. These improvements will reduce the Trust’s carbon footprint by 12,000 tonnes CO2e
- Nottingham Trent University now have 15 buildings with roof-mounted solar panels, and have used their ‘Pack for Good’ scheme to divert 155 tonnes of waste from landfill
- The University of Nottingham have installed air source heat pumps to heat their swimming pool, and replaced their standard gas boilers with high efficiency condensing boilers.
