The manager of the ULPGC, Roberto Moreno, has valued this grant from the Canary Islands Government very positively, which “is in line with our effort to improve university facilities and make them more energy-efficient as one more contribution of the ULPGC to the sustainability of our university buildings ”. The Manager indicated that he hopes that the works can begin in a period not exceeding two months.
Improving energy efficiency is one of the objectives set by the rector’s team, included in the electoral program. “We must walk towards a campus that is an example of sustainability, both in the management of its spaces and the environment in which it is located. The reduction of our carbon footprint should be a priority, as well as the diffusion of an environmental culture towards society and the members of the university community. We must contribute to the reduction in the consumption of electricity and fossil fuels, as well as water, and promote a reduction in the use of plastic and paper in general, promoting their recycling ”.
