FACTS AT A GLANCE
CSU's commitment to sustainability is built on the foundation of efficient operation, design and construction of our 23 campuses in order to provide a high quality, affordable educational environment. That commitment will continue growing with increased on-campus clean energy generation, more pervasive smart building controls, and greater student involvement and curriculum development to prepare the next generation of "green" professionals.
The CSU will continue its partnership with utility companies to leverage incentive funding for energy efficiency projects, demand reduction programs and renewable on-site generation. Additionally, campuses have to develop strategic energy plans coupled with sustainabilityactions plans that will become the roadmaps for reaching our sustainability, energy efficiency and climate change goals. The plans will include sustainable procurement, water conservation, transportation demand management and climate action plans.
The CSU will continue to use voter approved bonds to improve the efficiency of existing building systems while renewing the state's capital investment. We look forward to improvements in the instructional technology area with virtual computing reducing the number ofservers on campus. Continued support of the energy efficiency program, utility partnerships, and increased assessment of facilities performance will continue to move CSU toward its carbon reduction goal.
