Yale Cuts GHG Emissions

yale22.jpgIn a speech at the University of Copenhagen, Yale President Richard Levin said that since committing to a steep reduction in 2005, the university has reduced its GHG emissions by 17 percent. Levin has directed the university to cut its emissions to ten percent below its 1990 level by 2020, which is 43 percent below its 2005 level.

Yale’s strategy to shrink its carbon footprint combines conservation measures, renewable energy use and direct participation in offset projects. The university’s target is comparable to what is needed globally to keep temperatures from rising more than two degrees centigrade. Yale expects to reach its goal at a cost of less than one percent of its annual operating budget, said Levin.

Last year, representatives from 284 colleges pledged to go carbon neutral. Some colleges are striving to achieve that goal in part through server virtualization.
