President's Comments

Central Connecticut State University is deeply committed to environmental sustainability.  We were one of the first universities to become a signatory to the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment in August of 2007.

One key component of our sustainability efforts is the Climate Action Plan (CAP), which serves to outline the University's approach to achieving climate neutrality.  Following our CAP, we have been able to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through the construction of a state-of-the-art Energy Center, purchase of renewable energy credits, investing in building retofits, and engagenment in campus-wide community educational initiatives.  To build upon these successes, and follow the CAP, we will develop and implement further mitigation strategies to achieve climate neutrality by 2050.  We have established interim reduction goals to be achieved by 2015 (20% GHG reductions from 2008 levels) and 2025 (50% reductions from 2008 levels).
