Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

Completion of this project would serve the Carbon Fund’s Mission Statement by helping to mitigate climate change through reduction of UCSC’s greenhouse gas emissions and concomitant reduction of our carbon footprint. We calculate that this project would save nearly 36 tons of atmospheric CO2 emissions over the first 20 years (see GHG & Cost Savings Calculator for this project). Our project goals are therefore in direct alignment with the UC presidents pledge to become Carbon Neutral by 2025.
