Grenoble INP – UGA has joined the Race to Zero for Universities and Colleges alongside more than 1,000 institutions around the globe.
This UN-backed initiative encourages institutions to “pledge, plan, proceed, and publish” their path to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.
All of Grenoble INP – UGA’s activities this fall produced 1.8 tons CO2 equivalent per person*.
The items responsible for the most emissions were energy consumption, mobility, and equipment purchases.
Now that the school has pledged, it will write up a plan consolidating all of the measures implemented campus-wide, with a target of reducing overall carbon emissions by 75% by 2030.
*For a person in France, the average carbon footprint is 8 t CO2 e/person (source: https://www.citepa.org/fr/2021_11_a28 )
