Colorado State University (CSU) has committed to reducing net carbon emissions by 75% by 2030 and 100% by 2050. As the largest department on campus, housing more than 7,000 students and growing, Housing & Dining Services (HDS) plays a significant role in this commitment. This sub-plan of CSU’s Climate Action Plan was commissioned as a proactive step to ensure HDS has identified specific short-term strategies and is looking ahead to long-term strategies to meet our part in these ambitious carbon reduction goals. This sub-plan will guide the department through 2020, outlining action items that can be implemented starting in FY17. As part of our holistic approach to sustainability that includes environmental, economic, and social aspects of sustainability, this plan includes not just a focus on utilities and equipment, but also strategies to ensure that our students are engaged in the process and learn from the initiatives implemented in our halls, apartments, and dining centers.
