Climate Action Plan

The 2016 Brandeis University Climate Action Plan outlines several efforts we will undertake to reduce our carbon footprint. Our short-term goal is reduce our emissions by 10% by fiscal year 2018, and 15% by fiscal year 2020, over a fiscal year 2015 baseline. 

Since its founding in 1948, Brandeis has been committed to social justice. Climate change presents a serious threat to all human life and especially to vulnerable communities. It is imperative that we act to reduce our carbon footprint not only in support of the 2015 Paris Agreement, but because of our commitment to ensuring that students remain deeply concerned about the welfare of others and appreciate the power and responsibilities that come with knowledge.
