Join us during Alumni Weekend for an overview of how BU plans to reduce direct greenhouse gas emissions to zero on BU’s campuses by 2040. BU is working towards making buildings more energy-efficient and resilient to flooding, and shifting away from fossil fuels to wind and solar sources. The Climate Action Plan Task Force is pleased to present an overview of the five-point Climate Action Plan and recommendations based on assessing science and long-term fiscal responsibility. Hear about how BU’s Task Force aims to elevate the University’s position as a leader in addressing the challenges of climate change in its educational programs, research, operations, finance, and community engagement. An overview of the power purchase agreement will also be presented.
