AU climate strategy 2020-2025

In spring 2020, Aarhus University adopted its first climate strategy. The strategy will apply from 2020 to 2025, and it sets specific targets for work to make AU’s operations even more climate-friendly. The goal for 2025 is to reduce the university's carbon emissions by 35% against a 2018 baseline.  

Action plans

Further to the climate strategy, an action plan is developed every year. The action plan includes a description of a number of initiatives that pave the way for significant CO₂ reductions in university operations. Activities for the previous year are followed up each year.
