Why Now

Our planet is at a crucial point. The University at Buffalo has put in decades of work in making our campus more sustainable and decreasing its greenhouse gas impact. Now the time has come to take bold, big actions in achieving our goal of carbon neutrality by 2030.  


Our Footprint

Quantifying our greenhouse gas footprint guides us in our reduction strategies. Our university has measured its impact since our foundational 2009 Climate Action Plan. Along the way, we got better at capturing a more holistic picture of this impact, but we still have more to do.

The Solutions

A two-year process of campus engagement led to the establishment of ten strategies to get our campus to carbon neutrality by 2030. These ten guiding principles are UB's new Climate Action Plan.
