Session Length:

Colorado State has made ambitious carbon reduction goals. These include the 2017 signing of the Climate Reality Pledge - a commitment to 100% renewable electricity by 2030. In addition, CSU has committed to reducing the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the university to zero by the year 2050. This session will provide an update on the strategies in place to achieve those goals and the progress made to date. Remember, the university's footprint is actually made up of our individual contributions so we will also explore specific measures that each of us can embrace to reduce our individual impact. Please join us!
Goals and Target Audience:
Faculty, staff, and students should all be interested in how their work here at the university impacts the environment. The goal is to keep the university community informed on progress toward reducing GHG emissions, and how each of us can help.
