UNC’s Progress Towards Carbon Neutrality as of 2013
In order to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, the University needs to average a net annual emissions reduction of 12,955 metric tons of CO2e. This is a two percent reduction in emissions annually. Currently, the University is 19,585 metric tons of CO2e above this goal. The University has averaged an annual reduction of 9,691 metric tons of CO2e, or just under two percent annually.
