Griffith University’s goal is to halve carbon emissions by 2030 and reduce them to net zero emissions by 2050.

Griffith’s plan for achieving net zero CO2 emissions with a target of 45-50% reduction against a 2010 baseline involves three main strategies:

  • Avoiding emissions
  • Reducing emissions
  • Generating and purchasing clean energy

We are implementing energy reduction initiatives as part of these strategies that will make a difference, including an aviation emissions reduction plan, maintaining forest ecosystem carbon accounting, and encouraging sustainable travel options.

Energy saving initiatives

We have installed almost 1 MW of renewables technology across our campuses. This includes solar panels, a wind turbine and hydrogen technology.

Investment in smart meters has given us the ability to better monitor and analyse our data.

Our new Smart Lighting systems and LED lighting upgrades, and comprehensive Building Management System to control air conditioning systems are reducing and better managing our energy requirements.

Green labs program

Our Green Labs Program is reducing energy in high usage areas through infrastructure upgrades and behavioural change programs.
