The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) will require institutions to have carbon-management plans in place after 2011. To add to the pressure on universities, the Government has said that from 2011, some of the funding that institutions will receive will be linked to how well they are reducing their carbon emissions.

The university sector in England, meanwhile, has been devising carbon reduction targets of its own. A joint consultation between HEFCE, Universities UK and GuildHE on developing a carbon reduction target and strategy for higher education in England was published on 29 July 2009. The consultation asks for views on proposed sector-level targets for the reduction of carbon emissions and a proposed strategy for achieving these targets.
