Climate Action Plan
A Call to Action
Fordham University is committed to reducing its environmental impact through targeted, verifiable measures that focus on reducing our greenhouse gases generated from all aspects of our operations. Our focus has been concentrated on reducing emissions from our buildings, which constitute the majority of CO2 emitted from our campuses.
This commitment is manifest by our early involvement with New York City’s Carbon Challenge, which started in 2007. Since joining the Challenge, we have reduced our CO2 equivalent (CO2e) by 31.77% and we are well on our way to meeting our commitment to reduce emissions 40% by the year 2030.
