Reducing emissions[edit | edit source]

Although the emissions related to scientific research are a small fraction of the overall emissions, it has been argued that they should be reduced for several reasons:

  • Scientists should avoid unnecessarily harming the environment, in the same way as they should avoir unnecessarily harming animals while doing research.[1]
  • Scientists face a credibility gap when recommending reducing emissions if their own emissions are high.[1]

Low carbon campuses[edit | edit source]

The ecological footprint of low carbon campuses can be assessed both quantitatively and qualitatively.[2]
