Campus Initiatives

Reducing emissions requires planning and investment at a large scale, such as upgrading buildings and systems for greater efficiency and investing in renewable energy sources (See UMD's Energy Action Plan).

Reducing emissions also requires small-scale efforts at the department, office, and individual levels -- conserving energy, recycling and composting, flying less, and carpooling are all things we can do as part of the UMD community to participate in reducing our campus carbon footprint. Explore the tabs to the left to learn more about our current campus initiatives.
