Emissions rise at UK universities puts 2020 targets in doubt
"Carbon emissions have risen at most of the UK's universities over the past five years, a new league table published by the Guardian reveals, prompting concern that institutions will fail to meet strict targets for reductions by 2020.
"Nottingham Trent University topped People & Planet's annual Green League, closely followed by Gloucestershire, Worcester and Plymouth - but elite universities were left trailing.
"Overall, carbon emissions at 139 universities rose by 3.9% between 2005 and 2010, even though capital funding for English institutions is now linked to reductions."
