Reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions are top priorities for NUI Galway's energy department. The aim is to develop the campus as a resource-efficient sustainable energy community. As outlined in both the NUI Galway Energy Policy and in the NUI Galway Statement of Fundamentals, the University operates an Energy Management System which complies in every respect with all legal requirements related to our energy use and to have this system externally certified by an independent body. NUI Galway achieved ISO 50001 status in 2012, and became ISO 50001:2018 Certified in 2020, meaning NUI Galway operates to an internationally recognised Energy Management System standard aligned to the UN SDGS, enabling us to establish systems and processes necessary to improve energy performance, efficiency, use and consumption.
