UBC is beginning the process to develop a new Climate Action Plan for the Vancouver Campus.
Over the next 4 months, we will be seeking input from the campus community on what actions we could to take to achieve the 2020 climate action target of reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 67 per cent from 2007 levels.
This is the second phase of climate action planning at UBC. The university has already made significant progress towards achieving the first target set out in the 2010 Climate Action Plan, and we are now preparing to lay the groundwork for the next phase of reductions.
As a first step, from September 14 – 27 we are inviting the campus community to share their ideas on how we could reduce our campus GHG emissions, particularly in the areas of:
• energy supply
• energy use in buildings
• UBC-owned vehicles
• individual behaviours
The ideas we receive will help inform the next phase of consultation later this Fall on potential actions UBC could pursue to achieve the 67 per cent target by 2020.
