UN Sustainable Development Goal 8 is to promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all.
Did You Know?
In 2016, fossil fuel use within the transport sector accounted for 27% of total EU greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Road transport was responsible for almost 72% of transport emissions.
The UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognizes that sustainable transport enhances economic development, optimizes the productivity of rural areas through urban-rural linkages, improves air quality and reduces GHG emissions. A sustainable transport system prioritises public transport, cycling, walking and electric vehicles (powered by electricity generated from renewable energy sources).
Trinity has adopted five sustainable transport objectives:
1) Increase Use of Sustainable Transport
2) Increase Renewable Energy Use in College Transport
3) Reduce Car Use
4) Increase use of bikes by 10%
Our Sustainability Report details the progress that has been made in their implementation.
You can walk, cycle, skate or jog to work rather than drive - do your heart and the environment a power of good!
If walking takes too long, you can use public transport or share the car - our campus benefits from direct access to multiple bus lines, the DART line and Luas lines. For more detailed information about your options check out the national Journey Planner website.
Our Green Map will show you where you can find on-campus secure bicycle-parking, and the locations of Dublinbikes and DART/Luas stations.
Remote Conferencing options
Trinity has a variety of remote conferencing options, to participate in meetings, conferences and workshops. The carbon footprint of travel is one of our biggest footprints, and in many cases travel can be avoided, saving the cost involved, the time involved, and the carbon footprint impact.
You can find more about video conferencing options here, and ITServices can be contacted for further instruction on how to use the options:
