Campus Service (CAS) at DTU has the mission of servicing our University with a high quality within all areas of Facility Management: planning, building, operation and maintenance. At the same time CAS supports the vision of DTU to be a sustainable university so we try to think sustainable in all aspects of our work. DTU has set two targets in the contract with the ministry (FIVU). DTU wants to do 15% better on waste and energy in 2015. DTU will increase the recycling rate by 15% from 2010 – 2015 and DTU will use 15% lessenergy per man year staff and student in the same period. Both targets are ambitious and hard to reach.First part of the presentation will give an introduction to DTU’s sustainability policy, our targets and figuresup until now as well as information about CAS initiatives on behavior campaigning.CAS would like to get ideas and input on how to reach the two targets. Second part of the presentation is about using our Campus as a living lab. CAS will try to support sustainability initiatives or projects from researchers and students. We are willing to share our data and if possible to try out - or test new products or solutions. CAS is also keen on getting input on doing things in another and more sustainable way. It can be hard to know which solution is the most sustainable but working together with i.e. DTU Management CAS has received valuable input for our new buildings and ourdaily operation and maintenance. Some examples will be given.
