A comprehensive review of the strategies and steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on campus, with best practices from U.S. colleges and universities
This guide addresses a simple question: How can colleges and universities significantly reduce their greenhouse gas emissions quickly and cost effectively? Reducing emissions without a climate action plan is like constructing a building without a blueprint—the outcome is unlikely to meet the original goals in a timely manner. Cutting an institution’s climate footprint efficiently requires careful planning, but the time and energy invested in this process are well worth the return. The planning process engages a wide range of staff, faculty, administrators, and students to analyze and prioritize an array of low-carbon strategies. Once in place, the climate action plan provides the design and timeline for achieving one’s carbon reduction goals. Learn how others have developed cutting edge climate action plans and how you can create one for your campus.
