The campus has committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2030 for scope 1 (on site generation and fleet vehicles) and scope 2 (purchased electricity) emissions. We are also working very hard to reduce scope 3 emissions (travel, waste related emissions and embodied carbon emissions). In appendix A, we describe a detailed road map for how the campus will achieve scope 1 and 2 carbon neutrality. As a core goal, all members of our campus community are encouraged to identify ways to reduce their individual and department greenhouse gas emissions.
- The university has not increased energy use since 2010 despite 50% more square footage and twice the number of students
