Carbon Neutrality Leadership Initiative

Carbon Neutrality Leadership Initiative

The Leading the Way to Climate Neutrality Initiative will be a first-of-its-kind partnership among faculty, students, staff and industry to make UC Davis a zero-carbon campus by 2025. This transdisciplinary, universitywide initiative will accelerate efforts to pilot, finance and implement carbon reduction projects, the savings from which will be reinvested. Through project-based learning opportunities, faculty, students and staff will collaboratively test and operationalize cutting-edge research and translate this work to the public.
