UC Progress Towards Carbon Neutrality

The University of California system is committed to being carbon neutral by 2025. With this groundbreaking pledge, UC will become the first major university to achieve this accomplishment.

In 2014, the Global Climate Leadership Council was created to provide guidance for achieving carbon neutrality and other long-term sustainability goals.

For UC Berkeley to meet this target, campus emissions will need to be reduced about 80% below 1990 levels. This is part of ongoing efforts by UC Berkeley to reduce carbon emissions from building energy use and fleet vehicles use.
