Climate Action Plan

Climate Action Plan

EOR led a team of consultants who prepared BSU's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory & Climate Action Plan. As a signatory of the American College & University President's Climate Commitment BSU is to be carbon neutral by 2050. The GHG emissions inventory and Climate Action Plan identified strategies grouped under the following topics: Energy Conservation & Efficiency; Waste & Recycling; Transportation; Renewable Energy; Water Quality & Water Conservation; and Native Vegetation. The Plan will assist BSU within 16% of the carbon neutrality goal. The Plan uses an adaptive management approach to achieve the remaining portion of the carbon emission goal, understanding that new technologies will become available within the next 40 years.
