At UMBC 20% of our energy comes from renewable clean energy, and we actively pursue opportunities to reduce energy consumption. In 2007, President Hrabowski signed on to the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment and formed the Climate Change Task Force. We have calculated our emissions and developed a climate action plan along annual updates on our progress, published at http://rs.acupcc.org/.
Climate Change Task Force
Comprised of faculty, staff, and students the Climate Change Task Force has been charged with advising President Hrabowski on strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions generated by the campus community, to engage the campus community in efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to promote and support instruction and research on the impact of greenhouse gas emissions.
