Climate change not only impacts the environment, but also our energy, economic, and financial systems. There is increasing recognition of the need for interdisciplinary work to tackle the issues it raises. The Climate committee is focuses on reducing UT Arlington's carbon footprint by developing an Emissions Inventory and a Sustainability Action Plan/Climate Change plan. The Campus Climate Action Plan refers to the collection of policies, programs, and practices that aim to or have had the effect of reducing greenhouse gas emissions reductions on campus.
A greenhouse gas emissions inventory is an accounting of the amounts and sources of emissions of greenhouse gases attributable to the various operations of an institution. The inventory it is a crucial first step toward comprehensive campus climate action efforts.
