CLU Named Climate Action Leader
California Lutheran University has been named a Climate Action Leader for participating in the country’s most rigorous voluntary greenhouse gas reporting program.
The California Climate Action Registry recognizes organizations that have measured, verified and reported their emissions to the registry and the public. The report measures the University’s carbon footprint, the amount of climate-changing greenhouse gases its activities produce. The report is available at https://www.climateregistry.org/CARROT/public/reports.aspx.
CLU produces just less than four tons of carbon emissions per student on its main campus in Thousand Oaks and satellite centers in Woodland Hills and Oxnard. On average, universities produce close to 10 tons per student. Colleges in Southern California that are similar to Cal Lutheran produce 75 percent more emissions than CLU.
