Increasing sustainability in universities – how one university is leading the way!

By John Matthews

Based on the recent Times Higher Education survey, University College Cork has been ranked as the top university in the world when it comes to sustainability and recycling https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2019/10/best-universities-for-recycling-sustainability/

UCC has cut its carbon emissions by 36%, planted 2,500 trees on campus, and increased the number of people cycling by 90%. Its library, one of the most energy-intensive buildings on campus, has seen a 9% reduction in energy use and a 700% increase in recycling through its own sustainability programme.

Their 9% reduction in energy use has led to savings of €40k+. What’s more, achieving a target such as this is not hard to do!

Cognition work with companies and universities to help them do exactly what UCC have done – reduce operational costs and improve the sustainability of factories and campus’ throughout Ireland and the UK.

We have helped to reduce operational expenditure by 10%+ through the use of our proven operational intelligence platform that allows you to visualise, analyse and act on the real-time data generated throughout your campus.

Whether it is tracking energy consumption (electricity, water or gas), room occupancy (lecture halls, labs, meeting rooms etc.), parking or other challenges you may be facing, let Cognition join you on your journey towards smarter, sustainable operations.
