University of South Florida, St. Pete Climate Action Plan 2016

On Earth Day 2013, USFSP became a signatory of the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) in recognition of the real problem of global climate change and its inevitable impacts on waterfront communities. We are committed to exercising leadership in responding to this challenge with a comprehensive vision of campus sustainability including education, research, operations, administration, and finance. Meeting ACUPCC expectations and ranking in the Princeton Review Green Colleges guide are measured as key performance indicators within the USFSP Strategic Plan, Vision 20/20, and this emissions reduction plan is instrumental in satisfying both. This Climate Action Plan (CAP) serves as a guide for USFSP’s endeavor to reach its sustainability goal of carbon neutrality. This CAP reflects an extensive analysis of the campus’ 2014 GHG inventory and business as usual (BAU) forecast, which in turn helped to develop goals and select strategies to reduce carbon emissions for the next twenty years and beyond.
