The first draft of the UW's Climate Action Plan, which charts a strategic vision for the UW's commitment in achieving climate neutrality, is now available for comment. Click here to view the plan online. In January 2009, under the auspices of the Environmental Stewardship Advisory Committee, a Climate Action Planning Oversight Team formed to coordinate the drafting of a Climate Action Plan.The plan, which is the product of four months' work by teams of faculty, staff and students from all three campuses, is an important step in fulfilling the pledge made when President Emmert signed the American College University Presidents Climate Commitment for achieving no net greenhouse gas emissions. The UW's approach to drafting the Climate Action Plan is to set out broad strategies -- i.e. a "plan to plan," that will guide the University to the goal of climate neutrality.
