Environmental Sustainability Our path to Net Zero Carbon 2030

We have a strong history of enhancing environmental sustainability within and beyond Edinburgh Napier. To maintain our achievements and develop our work further we have set significant commitments within our new University Strategy.

We will achieve net zero carbon in our operations by 2030 at the latest. We will also seek to minimise both our wider and legacy carbon footprint and also influence sustainable practices within and beyond our campuses.

The information and links below provide an overview of our work, including a range of projects students and staff are currently leading at the University. Our achievements are due to partnership and collaborative working. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries or would like to be involved - we would be delighted to hear from you!
