Emissions Reduction Pledge

Pledge-graph2In 2008, former President James Wright strengthened Dartmouth’s environmental commitment by pledging to cut greenhouse gas emissions at least 30% by 2030.

To achieve this goal, the College has targeted three key areas:

1) Reduce energy demand by increasing building efficiency.

2) Promote conservation: monitor and optimize energy usage with the new energy management system.

3) Improve supply: manage risk and cost and develop an innovative future.

With over $15M invested in energy projects to date, Dartmouth’s 2013 emissions show a 22% reduction from the 2005 baseline.
