Climate-friendly cars roll onto campus

Challenge
Aarhus University wants to reduce its carbon emissions in 2025 by 35 per cent compared with the 2018 baseline.

Solution
It has been decided that only vehicles using a climate-friendly fuel (i.e. electric and hybrid cars) are to be purchased in connection with procurement of AU vehicles, and AU’s diesel and petrol vehicles will be phased out.

Electricity and hybrid vehicles are better for the climate than petrol and diesel vehicles, as explained below: If a car drives approx. 200,000 km during its lifetime, an electric car will emit approx. 68% less CO2 than an average Danish petrol-powered car.

Furthermore, there are other advantages of having an electric car, for example less particle pollution and lower noise levels in the city.

More charging stations will be set up on campus as more electric vehicles are procured.

Parking for shared cars

Challenge
Aarhus University wants to reduce its carbon emissions in 2025 by 35 per cent compared with the 2018 baseline.

Solution
AU wants to make it as easy as possible to use shared cars to and from campus. As an employee, you can therefore use staff places for cars and carpooling.
