Plan Framework

The Climate Action Plan (CAP) will be consistent with the City of San Diego’s CAP and use 2010 as a baseline year for measurement and reduction targets. This will call for USD to reduce emissions (from the 2010 baseline year) 15% by 2020 and 50% by 2035.

Recommendations for changes will be from the following categories:

  1. Energy
  2. Water
  3. Fleet (USD Vehicles)
  4. Commuting
  5. Study Abroad Air Travel
  6. University Sponsored Travel
  7. Waste

The methodologies for reducing impact in order are:

  1. Measure Activity
  2. Decrease activity
  3. Make activity more efficient
  4. Make activity cleaner
  5. Offset emissions from activity
