Brown has made a commitment to providing leadership in mitigating climate change through its program of carbon emissions reductions, both on campus and in the larger community in which it is located.  To meet its community objectives Brown has launched the Community Carbon Use Reduction at Brown (CCURB) project which will help catalyze local carbon emissions reductions through an investment of financial resources and development of collaborations of community and civic groups with Brown students, faculty and staff on a diversity of activities.  Projects that accomplish the dual goals of helping meet the needs of the greater Providence neighborhoods while reducing greenhouse gas emissions will be the focus of these off-campus projects.
