Energy and Emissions

To combat the serious threat of climate change, we aim to dramatically reduce energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Goals and Aspirations

  • Strive toward climate neutrality, with a goal to reduce GHG emissions by 50% by 2030 from 2008 baseline.
  • Produce or procure 50% of the University‚Äôs electric energy portfolio from renewable resources by 2030.
  • Embrace 2030 District goals of 50% reduction below the national average in energy use intensity (consumption per square foot) by 2030 (from 2003 baseline) and establish design standards and operational practices to achieve them.
