1 April 2020 Freedom of Information Request: Roehampton University and CO2 emissions
Dear Mr Hai
With reference to your request made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000,
dated 3 March 2020 I can confirm that the University holds the information
Your request was, in general terms, for the following information, which is set out in
full detail below: information in relation to CO2 emissions.
Your request and our response:
How much have you generated since 2015 per year? Please note Utilities cost, usage, CO2 emissions data, including electricity
production data, are reported annually in Estates Management Records (EMR)
available publicly on the HESA website.
This information is therefore accessible by other means and review of the HESA
site would provide you with sector wide comparison.
What plans if any do you have to cut it?
Sustainability Enabling Strategy aims to achieve a 25% reduction in Scope 1
and 2 carbon emissions per square meter by 2025 (against a 2019 baseline).
These aims were approved in November 2019.
How much extra will those plans cost? This is yet to be discussed and finalised. We are currently working on
developing plans for lighting upgrades to LED with controls in a further 5 large
buildings. Monitored savings usually reach -80%. £200k is set aside for upgrade
to our BMS system.
If you are dissatisfied with how we have dealt with your request in the first instance
you may approach the University’s FOI complaints officer in writing, and explaining
what you would like us to review, as follows:
Ms Kim Small
Head of Legal Services
Room GH103 Grove House
Should you remain dissatisfied with the outcome you have a right under s50 of the
Freedom of Information Act to appeal against the decision by contacting the
Information Commissioner, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow SK9 5AF, or email@example.com
Any other future correspondence you may have with the University in relation to this
matter should be sent to the Freedom of Information Officer, Alison Bainbridge.
