The University of Dundee is committed to reducing all carbon emissions to a net zero position by 2045. To do this we are proactively developing our Carbon Management Plan which will help to guide us as we address the issues we find under Scopes 1, 2 and 3 that we need to address.

We report annually to the Sustainable Scotland Network which collates all the sustainability climate change data from Scotland’s public sector. You can find our annual reports at the Sustainable Scotland Network website.
