UNM commits to accelerate local climate action

February 6, 2018

The University of California (UC) unveiled the University Climate Change Coalition, or UC3, a bold new coalition of 13 leading North American research universities that will prototype a collaborative model designed to help local communities achieve their climate goals and accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future.

New Mexico raised and current UC President Janet Napolitano announced the initial cohort of distinguished universities, which includes The University of New Mexico (UNM). The cohort has committed to mobilize their resources and expertise to accelerate local and regional climate action in partnership with businesses, cities and states.

All UC3 members have already pledged to reduce their institutional carbon footprints, with commitments ranging from making more climate-friendly investments to becoming operationally carbon neutral.
