Energy and Sustainability

We develop innovative strategies to meet our climate action and other sustainability goals.

Energy and Sustainability supports efficient use of university resources and helps chart a path to eliminate UC’s use of fossil fuels through its leadership and coordination across climate and energy, transportation, green building, zero waste, water and food programs and initiatives. We are leading a bold new effort to change the sources of the energy that UC consumes through our energy services unit.
