Developing policies to lessen our university's carbon impact.
The University is on a mission to get to carbon neutrality by 2030. There are 10 main strategies outlined in our 10 in 10 Climate Action Plan (CAP) to get us there. One piece involves developing best practices for sustainable travel, sustainable purchasing, and hosting low-carbon events. The Carbon Offset committee of the CAP would like a team of students to research what these best practices are and produce a menu of policies that they can endorse for the rest of the university to use.
Draft recommended policies that would guide university departments and offices to make smarter, carbon-conscious choices in regards to traveling, purchases and events.
