EBC is excited to present this series of webinars featuring projects and organizations leading the way in climate change adaptation and mitigation in New England. Featuring the nominated projects for the 2020 EBC Annual EBEE Awards Program, this series will focus on the forward-thinking and innovative projects being planned and implemented throughout New England.

This EBC Climate webinar will present the Boston University Climate Action Plan (CAP) and its bold goals to mitigate impact of climate change and plan for resilient campuses. The expert faculty-led CAP Task Force published a plan in 2017 to achieve net zero direct emissions by 2040, to reduce energy demand by 31% by 2032, meet 100% of its electricity needs with renewables, and address indirect emissions from transportation, waste, and sourcing. Moreover, the CAP recommends robust support for climate change education and research at BU and integrating these recommendations into the University’s Strategic Plan. BU recognizes that climate change is a global problem extending beyond its campuses and engaged the City in the CAP planning process and continues to engage the broader community to leverage what is learned. BU will continue to show leadership in addressing the challenges of climate change in its educational programs, research, and operations, and considers the CAP and its implementation a reflection of its core values of global citizenship and community.

Join us for this EBC webinar to learn more about the Boston University Climate Action Plan.
