For the second year in a row, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency named UC among its national leaders in the use of clean, renewable energy in its Green Power Partnerships program. UC now generates more on-site renewable energy than any other university in the country. The University also funded 47 students with Carbon Neutrality Initiative Fellowships across the system during the 2017-18 school year to work on projects to support UC’s climate neutrality goal.

This 15th Annual Report on Sustainable Practices highlights the achievements of the University of California’s comprehensive sustainability program over the past year. This includes progress in sustainable operations as laid out by UC’s Sustainable Practices Policy and achievements related to sustainability and the University’s core mission of education, research and public service. This report is provided to the UC Board of Regents each January to report on progress toward meeting the goals in the Sustainable Practices Policy.
