President's Climate Commitment
In the summer of 2007 Naropa committed to sharply reducing and eventually eliminating all of the university's global warming emissions by signing the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment, joining the leaders of more than four hundred other institutions across the country.
What is a Carbon Footprint?
A Carbon Footprint is a measure of the impact human activities have on the environment. It is a calculation of the volume of greenhouse gases produced by a given institution or individual and is measured in units of carbon dioxide. If an institution or individual does not create a Carbon Footprint, then he or she or it is considered to be climate neutral.
At Naropa University we are committed to reducing our own Carbon Footprint and eventually becoming Climate Neutral.
