UW's Climate Action Plan
March 8, 2010 — The Campus Sustainability Committee has created and published a Climate Action Plan (CAP) for the University of Wyoming. The CAP includes information about UW's greenhouse gas emissions, goals for reducing the institution's emissions and its carbon footprint, and phased action steps to achieve the goals.
Using 2005 emissions data as a baseline, UW's sustainability goals are to decrease greenhouse gas emissions 15 percent by 2015, 25 percent by 2020 and 100 percent by 2050.
The CAP proposes a plan to achieve those targeted goals through education and outreach, energy and climate research projects, implementation of energy efficiency upgrades and initiatives, and integration of sustainability throughout the institution.
