Campus community strives to become climate neutral

For the second year in a row, Brandeis improved its grade on the annual College Sustainability Report Card. After receiving a B- grade from the Sustainable Endowments Institute last year, the non-profit gave the university a B for 2010. The improvement highlights significant sustainability efforts across campus, including the development of the Brandeis University Climate Action Plan, which outlines strategies to reduce campus greenhouse gas emissions and become climate neutral by 2050.
