The 2019-2020 academic year started with a renewed strategic vision for climate activism at Temple University. Goals included in the 2019-2020 Sustainability Annual Report were established in the 2019 Climate Action Plan.
The Climate Action Plan, released in April 2019, provided a roadmap for continued progress towards carbon neutrality by 2050. Over 300 members of the Temple community collaborated to articulate goals in 5 different focus areas. These are Academics and Research, Culture, Design, Energy, and Operations. The plan reflects a true commitment from Temple students, faculty and staff to work together to shape a more sustainable and just climate future on campus, in Philadelphia and beyond.
Although the COVID-19 outbreak pushed our report’s release, our students, faculty and staff remained committed to climate action. This Sustainability Annual Report details significant progress towards a more environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable future. Highlights include memorable accomplishments and progress toward goals in all focus areas.
