The UC Annual Systemwide Report for 2018-2019 is now available and was presented to the UC Regents this month.
Find the UC Report here, and the UC Berkeley highlights here.  Items of note from the report for Berkeley related to meeting UC targets:
  • Climate - we met the 2020 target in 2014, reducing our overall emissions to below 1990 levels.
