Carbon Neutrality Initiative at UCLA

Carbon Neutrality Initiative at UCLA Logo

In November 2013, President Janet Napolitano announced the Carbon Neutrality Initiative, which commits the entire University of California to emitting net zero greenhouse gases from its buildings and vehicle fleet by 2025, something no other major university system has done. The initiative builds on UC's pioneering work on climate research and furthers its leadership on sustainable business practices. UC is improving its energy efficiency, developing new sources of renewable energy and enacting a range of related strategies to cut carbon emissions. The Carbon Neutrality Initiative at UCLA engages UCLA students, faculty, and staff, raising awareness to the initiative, and promoting ways in which the UCLA community can reduce its overall carbon footprint and the carbon footprint of each individual. Undergraduate and graduate Carbon Neutrality Initiative Fellows lead the projects and efforts of this organization.
