University of Leeds Environmental Management:  University of Leeds Environmental Management Dr Keith Pitcher Environmental Officer contact tel: 0113 343 7255 email: [email protected] Environmental Policy Managerial Structure Some examples of good environmental management Building Energy Audits Transportation Policy Waste Management Summary Environmental Policy:  Environmental Policy The University adopted its Environmental Policy on 28 November 2001 following approval by Senate In the EMS we will: Meet legislative & regulatory requirements and agreements Review our activities and operations Seek continuous environmental improvements and set performance targets Influence our suppliers and contractors Develop environmental management training programmes Produce a green transport policy Examine toxic materials usage, waste minimisation and prevention of releases of pollutants We will conduct our own activities and operations to reflect best environmental practice, implement an environmental management system (EMS) to pursue sustainability and continuous improvement and seek innovative ways of meeting environmental objectives. Review of activities and operations:  Review of activities and operations Efficiency improvements (buildings, energy, waste, services) Environmental targets (new legislation, standards) Teaching & research (new opportunities) Participation by: faculties service providers Estates Purchasing Finance external organisations The review of our activities is to identify environmental benefits across the University Managerial structure:  Managerial structure Get ownership/buy in at all levels and all departments Co-ordinate/review/improve existing good work and start initiatives what has occurred elsewhere and new suggestions Present/publicise - internal and external - on how we are doing intranet, website, prospectus, high profile media features, annual reports, audit reports, training sessions, internal magazines Regional Index of Environmental Engagement Programmes & projects New proposed roles Building energy audits:  Building energy audits Carry out initial assessment – assistance from Carbon Trust Monitor consumption Look for high electricity & high heating usage prioritise using: building history - link in to other requirements ease of installation selection of building types Produce project plan costs of refurbishment energy savings other benefits e.g. improved office environment Use building materials with high thermal insulation Use of renewable energy technologies to produce electricity and/or heat photovoltaics on roofs biomass fuelled boilers use these as research & teaching opportunities (+ additional income) Use of heat pumps Biomass fuelled boilers:  Biomass fuelled boilers Weobley 350 kW wood boiler heats the primary school and the adjacent secondary school. 150 - 300 tonnes of dry chips per year are supplied from local wood thinnings and from willow short rotation forestry. Wood chips are delivered twice a week. Ash is used as fertiliser on the school garden. Leeds is to jointly head a new energy research consortium. maximise the efficiency of the thermal process identify the ideal specifications of biomass fuels Photovoltaics on roofs:  Photovoltaics on roofs Integrated solar fascia and solar glass laminate roof light: Lambeth Centre Heat pumps:  Heat pumps The captor Captors are buried in the soil at a depth of between 50 and 60 cm. They enable energy to be collected from the soil and transported to the generator. The normal system, easily installed, is based on a number of horizontal captor "loops". For a house of 100 m2 floor area, a captor area of around 150 m2 is required. ? Supertram park & ride at Bodington Transportation - carbon emissions:  Transportation - carbon emissions Assumptions km/day av. travel Staff 6,678 26 Students 27,862 10 Vehicle emissions 185 g CO2/km UK car usage for work 69% Total elec. consumption 52,000 MWh Energy intensity 860 g/kWh 69% 52 % 25% 15% 10% 5% Identifying usage and setting a carbon reduction target offer viable choices change behavioural patterns 25% switch from cars = 3,500 tonnes of CO2 saved per year Using transport more efficiently Reduce carbon intensity in fuels Transport strategy:  Transport strategy A planning requirement of Leeds Planning Dept working with others to help develop our programmes University vehicles use low emission fuels in vehicles e.g. liquid petroleum gas, electric vehicles, with part funding from EST and suppliers University staff & students discounted rail & bus Metrocards developed with Metro & LCC car parking policy - carbon payments? secure parking, showers & clothes drying for cyclists car sharing: use postcodes; a priority for parking permits? use low emission fuels in vehicles UK LPG refuelling sites See the website http://www.powershift.org.uk/ At 2 May 2003 there were 1274 LPG refuelling sites in the UK. Click on the website for site details and local maps Waste management:  Waste management Since August 2000 the University recycled 17% of its waste Office waste paper recycling in operation since 1997 average of 210 tonnes per annum have been recycled 14% increase between 2001 and 2002 Cardboard recycled since 2001 average of 27 tonnes per annum have been recycled Computers Thousands of items of computers have been recycled Mobile Phones 30 phones were recycled in 2002 Waste management - future targets :  Waste management - future targets University to meet or better UK recycling targets 25% by 2005 30% by 2010 33% by 2015 WEEE regulations Dedicated management of all waste management issues February 2003 Introduce fluorescent light tubes recycling scheme June 2003 Increase recycling of cardboard August 2003 Investigate the feasibility of segregation of waste August 2003 Investigate the feasibility of introducing a glass recycling scheme November 2003 Recycling rates UK: 11% Switzerland, Germany and Austria: 50% Glass Aluminium Steel UK 25% 38% 30% Switzerland 93% 89% Germany 80% Waste management - recycling :  Waste management - recycling Office waste segregation & recycling scheme is being examined landfilling We want to go from this…. Waste management - recycling :  Waste management - recycling recycling ….. to this Services - historical usage:  Services - historical usage Excellent real savings in water usage have been achieved, with increasing staff and student numbers. How can this be replicated for energy usage? Target setting:  Target setting Target timescale (years) CO2 reduction target (‘000 tonnes/yr) We must set targets that are Specific Measurable Achievable and Challenging Relevant Timed e.g. 20% reduction in single car usage over 4 years This is where we must be Summary:  Summary Environmental Management System - the framework for our environmental programmes Finance provision is essential to start the programmes and recycle the benefits Use our knowledge and good case studies from elsewhere Targeting, monitoring, communication & reporting - all essential Everyone can contribute to the programmes
