Sustainable Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
Fresno State is committed to being a leader in the use of sustainable and clean energy. The CSU Sustainability Policy calls for all 23 campuses to further integrate sustainability into their academic curriculum; reduce facility GHG emissions to 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2040; develop employee and student workforce skills in the green jobs industry; and foster economic development, among other goals. To achieve this, Fresno State has begun climate action-planning through an intersection of coordinating efforts.
