Plan for a carbon-neutral campus finalized
On May 15, 2011 Case Western Reserve University submitted its Climate Action Plan
as part of the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment, a
national initiative of higher education leaders working together to impact climate
change. President Barbara R. Snyder signed the commitment in 2008, in which
she pledged to develop a Climate Action Plan to reduce the university's carbon
footprint to net zero within 40 years.
"To say this goal is ambitious represents the height of understatement," Snyder wrote in the opening letter of the Climate Action Plan. "But this institution will not embrace anything less."
