USU to Release Report Detailing Carbon Footprint Reduction Strategies

Utah Public Radio Monday, Jan. 13, 2020

As part of Utah State University's carbon neutrality goals, a report with recommendations for reducing carbon emissions is anticipated to be released this week. “The university made a goal back in 2007 saying that we wanted to become carbon neutral by 2050. Last year the faculty senate asked the university to do do more and to do it faster. Specifically the faculty senate said 10% per year until we’re getting down to zero,” said Alexi Lamm, the sustainability coordinator at Utah State University. To help meet their goal of carbon neutrality, USU’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Committee released a draft report of their recommendations in December. The recommendations varied, but one of the most impactful changes USU could make to reduce its carbon footprint is altering how it gets its energy. ... The final report should be released this week. After the report is released, it will be reviewed for feasibility.
