Climate Action Compact

In September of 2007, the Mayor of the City of Santa Cruz, the County Board of Supervisors, and the Chancellor of UC Santa Cruz signed the Climate Action Compact (CAC), a document in which parties agreed to take action on climate change. The commitments involved in the signing of this document for UCSC include:

  • Setting a greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goal by September 30, 2007
  • Identifying cooperative projects to reduce GHG emissions while stimulating local investment by January 1, 2008
  • Present a GHG Reduction Action Plan by January 1, 2009
  • Invite others from the region to participate
UCSC is committed to fulfilling the ambitious promise of the Compact, and has been taking steps to meet these goals.

The "First Annual Climate Action Compact Community Progress Report" aims to inform the communities of Santa Cruz regarding the progress the CAC has made on achieving its goal to mitigate climate change. Download the report here.
