Sustainable Campus, Sustainable Cities

Achieving carbon neutrality is the defining challenge of our time. Taking responsibility for our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and securing future quality of life with equitable solutions to combat climate change will require large-scale, interdisciplinary action.

At UC Davis Carbon Neutrality Leadership Initiative is an unprecedented, interdisciplinary partnership among faculty, students, staff and industry to make UC Davis a zero-carbon campus by 2025. Using the campus itself as a living laboratory, faculty, students and staff will collaboratively test, operationalize and translate cutting-edge research. In doing so, UC Davis will drive best practices for large institutions and cities worldwide, while providing the next generation of leaders with the knowledge and skills to foster global resilience to climate change.

A gift to support the Carbon Neutrality Leadership Initiative will help accelerate best practices and next-generation technologies while training students how to realize real-world energy solutions that will make UC Davis a model for other large institutions worldwide.

We invite you to partner with us in this first-of-its-kind initiative that will make UC Davis a zero-carbon campus by 2025.

The Carbon Neutrality initiative is one of UC Davis' Big Ideas, which are the centerpieces of the university's second comprehensive campaign to support transformative new programs.
