Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

In 2013, UC President Janet Napolitano announced the system-wide Carbon Neutrality Initiative which requires the entire UC system to be carbon neutral by 2025. Currently, buildings in the United States consume 40% of all energy. UCSC wants to reduce the energy use in buildings by creating a UCSC specific, green building checklist, that will be used on campus projects to reduce energy consumption and achieve sustainable benefits from a holistic building design approach.
