President Christina Paxson formed two sustainability committees, whose charge was to determine the technological feasibility, financial costs and potential target date for purchasing renewable electricity and setting goals for Scope 1 and 2 emissions. The committees have made headway in identifying a path to address Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. The committees will continue to work throughout FY19 to finalize the University’s approach to transforming the way it procures and utilizes energy.
