Climate Action Plan

Looking to the future… of Climate Action

Planning is essential to success, especially when we are already experiencing the initial impacts of global climate warming. In order for Mason to continue on our trajectory toward the "university of the future," we must be rigorous, consultative, and imaginative in formulating strategic climate actions reduce our contribution to global warming. We must identify data-informed opportunities to realize our values so that we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

George Mason University is accelerating action in response to the climate crisis by developing a new Climate Action Plan (CAP).

The CAP development is an initiative led by a partnership between GMU Facilities and the Mason Sustainability Council’s Carbon Neutrality Task Force.  The Mason Sustainability Council is a group of academic and operational leaders from across the University that is tasked with developing and directing sustainability strategy, planning and action, and identifying opportunities that benefit research, curricular, and operational sustainability simultaneously.
