Researchers at Loughborough University have been awarded a £2.7million grant to measure the carbon footprint of the entire city of Leicester.

The four-year project, which has been funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), will be led by Professor Kevin Lomas, from the University’s Department of Civil and Building Engineering.

De Montfort University, the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, the University of Sheffield and the University of Leeds will also be involved in the collaborative research work.

The research is called ‘Measurement, Modelling, Mapping and Management (4M): An evidence-based methodology for understanding and shrinking the carbon footprint’.
