BUFFALO, N.Y. — As the nation celebrates the 50th anniversary of Earth Day today, the University at Buffalo is unveiling an updated Climate Action Plan that doubles down on the university’s goal of being carbon neutral by 2030.
UB’s plan — called the “10 in 10” — is a road map of 10 strategies that will guide the university’s climate mitigation efforts over the next decade.
These 10 initiatives emerged from a two-year campus engagement process, which included students, faculty, staff and the community.
They also form a framework for UB’s implementation efforts, with each of the 10 categories corresponding to a working group that will advance action within the area.
A sampling of solutions put forth in the new Climate Action Plan includes:
“Through these impactful strategies, UB is building on not only our original Climate Plan of a decade ago, but our university’s longstanding environmental stewardship and leadership in climate action mitigation,” said UB President Satish K. Tripathi.
“UB’s enhanced Climate Action Plan is another powerful demonstration of the clear, measurable steps we are taking to respond to the increasing pace and intensity of global climate change,” Tripathi added.
