Air travel by academic staff contributes a considerable amount to greenhouse gas emissions. The air miles monitoring subgroup intends to address, quantify and finally reduce the number of air travels at our department.
The aims of the group are:
- to continue the monitoring of GIUZ air travel and compare its development to baseline information (2017-19)
- to reduce air travel by 25% by 2025
- and in parallel to discuss and promote alternatives for air travels, such as rail travel and virtual conferences.
Beside these goals the group also provides a platform for discussions on e.g. new strategies to reduce the number of conference attendance.
