SDSU has committed to operational carbon neutrality by 2040 and full carbon neutrality by 2050. Now that we have completed the Implementation Profile, initial Greenhouse Gas Inventory, and the 2017 Climate Action Plan, we can move campus toward a carbon-free future as we enter the implementation and tracking phase. In 2019, two students (Christi Yip and Victoria Lawless) adapted the UN Habitat Toolkit for City Climate Action Plans for universities. Using this framework, they completed a review of the SDSU Climate Action Plan. Their framework has now been approved for use across the United States.
Status of each of the climate actions identified in the plan are available here.
