According to the International Energy Agency of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (IEA/OECD), “transport accounts for nearly one-quarter of global energy-related CO2 emissions.” Effat University realizes that without a strong global action on reducing CO2 emissions and other air pollutants and greenhouse gasses (GHGs), global warming and climate change will persist.
 


Smart_Building_Center_Logo.pngGlobally, buildings account for a significant proportion of our Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions and increasing attention is being paid to the part that the construction industry can play in helping to reduce these. While the Smart Building Research Center investigates how energy costs and consumption in the construction industry can be reduced, regulations and standards on energy efficiency and emissions are coming along at Effat University.
 
In its efforts to enable mobility without increasing carbon dioxide emissions or accelerating climate change, the University regulated its transportation services in such a way that limited daily trips to two per day. The University also divided neighborhoods to zones and cost regions limiting as such the number of University vehicles on the road.
