Climate Action Planning at the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg

June, 2016. CCS completed work with staff and students at the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg (USFSP) on developing a Climate Action Plan (CAP) for submittal to the Climate Leadership Network (formerly the American Colleges and Universities Presidents’ Climate Commitment). The work completes a two-phase assistance agreement to build capacity at USFSP to measure, monitor, and manage greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to meet important goals of the university and contribute to broader efforts to expand climate change knowledge and solution capabilities. Phase 1, completed last year, covered the development of campus energy and greenhouse gas emissions baselines. During Phase 2, the work covered an assessment, selection, and prioritization of GHG mitigation strategies; an analysis of the expected GHG mitigation potential for each of the prioritized strategies; and the total GHG reductions of all strategies against the campus GHG baseline.
