Carbon neutrality by 2020
emissions are contributing to climate change, and the effects of climate
change are already visible.
That's why Northern Arizona University's past President Dr. John D. Haeger (2001-2014) pledged to make
the university a Carbon Neutral Campus by 2020. The Office of Sustainability directs and coordinates the development and
implementation of the university's Climate Action Plan.
Sustainability Action Plan Revision
NAU is rewriting our Plan and creating a new, more detailed Sustainability Action Plan. This living document will provide a roadmap for students, faculty, and staff to move towards a more sustainable campus. Contact the Office of Sustainability to get involved in creating the Plan that is changing the way NAU impacts the world.
All sections of the Sustainable Action Plan will be executed with consideration of class and student involvement.
