NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - The President’s Task Force on Carbon Neutrality and Climate Resilience of Rutgers will hold a meeting in the Cook Student Center Multipurpose Room ABC on Wednesday to seek input and ideas regarding the university's Climate Action Plan.
The meeting is schedule to run from 4-6 p.m.
University President Robert Barchi created the Task Force on Sept. 24, 2019, and since the fall 2019 semester, the Task Force has been trying to determine ways that the university can achieve carbon neutrality and reduce vulnerability to climate impacts.
The Task Force’s Pre-Planning Report, released in January 2020, describes the challenges for Rutgers, examines what other leading universities have been doing, and offers a preliminary analysis of our current emissions of carbon and other greenhouse gases.
The Task Force will deliver an interim report to President Barchi in May 2020, and a final report to President-elect Jonathan Holloway in 2021.
Other meetings discussing the Climate Action will be held in the Busch Student Center Multipurpose Room on Monday, Feb. 17 from 4-6 p.m., in Camden Campus Center MPR on Thursday, Feb. 18 from 4-6 p.m. and in Paul Robeson Campus Center Essex Room on Tuesday, Feb. 25 from 4-6 p.m.
