Sustainability is: Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
The Illinois Climate Action Plan (iCAP) outlines a path for the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to achieve carbon neutrality as soon as possible, and no later than 2050. The Campus committed to this ambitious goal when it signed the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) in 2008.
This site is a repository for summary information about each iCAP project, both to share the information publicly and to assist in collecting information for reporting purposes. These projects are organized into ten themes: Education, Energy, Funding, Land & Space, Outreach, Procurement & Waste, Reporting Progress, Research, Transportation, and Water.
The Goals page highlights current FY20 iCAP goals. Each Project page provides details and background information. The Map page can be filtered by associated theme. If you would like to recommend a new project or are aware of an existing project that is not listed on this site, please use the “Suggest a Project” tab to let us know.
