University of California's newest campus in Merced is making strides toward its stated goal of being the greenest in UC's system. Yesterday, it released a 56-page sustainability strategic plan and unveiled a related Website.
The sustainability plan, unveiled after almost three years of meeting, names environmental goals in 12 areas such as green construction and energy use.
The campus has an ambitious "triple zero" commitment to use renewable sources to produce as much energy as it uses, eliminate landfill waste and and produce no greenhouse gas emissions - all by 2020.
Here is a press release from the university, detailing more.
