Carbon budget and decision guide for work travel by air

Air travel accounts for around 95 percent of the university's emissions of carbon dioxide from work travel. A reduction in work travel by air needs to be prioritised in order to reach the set goals until 2030. The biggest emissions come from longer flights. Therefore, special attention needs to be directed towards reducing air travel between continents and within Europe.

The carbon dioxide budget and the decision guide are based on the Vice-Chancellor's decision's to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and established targets for each Faculty and unit for the period 2019–2030, with a reduction of seven percent per year. 305–23.
