From establishing institutional conservation and efficiency efforts to educating the campus community about the role of individual behavior changes, the office for sustainability is working to reduce the University of Richmond's environmental impact.

Climate Action Plan

President Edward Ayers signed the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) in 2007, committing to measuring the University’s carbon footprint, developing a collaborative plan to reach climate neutrality, and integrating sustainability into the learning experience. The Climate Action Plan sets 2050 as the target date for neutrality, with an interim target of a 30 percent reduction by 2020.
