CO2 Task Force

The Princeton University CO2 Task Force was convened by President Chris Eisgruber in 2015 to further frame Princeton’s role in meaningful climate stabilization demonstration and impact beyond the University’s current 2020 CO2 reduction target. Appointed members included noted faculty in a range of related fields as well as administrative staff. Recommendations generated by the Task Force and submitted in December 2015  are intended to inform the 2026 Campus Plan, the Sustainability Action Plan: Toward 2026 and Beyond, enhance the community’s sustainability ethos, and result in meaningful impact if applied broadly. The Task Force has advanced an approach that thoughtfully balances Princeton’s leadership imperative for early adoption and innovation with its obligation to demonstrate approaches that are repeatable by others.
