Carbon Neutrality

Wesleyan has committed to going carbon neutral by 2050.  To reach this goal, Wesleyan tracks its carbon footprint annually and has evaluated its sustainability efforts twice through STARS (Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System), a product of AASHE (Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education).  In 2016, Wesleyan created a Sustainability Action Plan to achieve carbon reduction and other sustainability goals.  In Spring 2017, President Roth was the third president nationwide to signed on in support of a national price on carbon.  Wesleyan is exploring the possibility of an internal carbon price for Facilities projects, so stay tuned for more information.
