Climate Action

✨ Scope 1 & 2 emissions have been reduced by 80% ✨

Stanford’s Climate Action Plan outlines strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which will require a significant decrease in energy use campus-wide. To achieve energy goals, Stanford employs holistic and long-term approaches, from stringent energy-performance standards for new buildings and retrofits of existing buildings, to behavior programs that encourage conservation and reduction.

Climate Action Planning

The update to the Climate Action Plan is being collaboratively developed by subject matter experts across campus who are leading working groups to propose climate action strategies.

Scope 3 Emissions

The university has identified eight categories that will be tracked in future mitigation, adaptation, and resiliency strategies.
