What can we do about climate change, you ask? Our university’s ambitious plan to eliminate 95% of fossil fuels from its operations by 2040 is now posted. It covers all UC Davis campuses, associated financial needs, and considerations for equity, climate justice and habitat health … and, we’ve already begun!

The document stands as the earliest plan for a multi-campus UC, a UC with a medical center and one of the most extensive plans within the U.S. higher education. Learn how it started, how the community contributed and where we can go from here.
