In 2019, Temple embarked on a new chapter in its climate leadership - updating its Climate Action Plan with a clear path to carbon neutrality and strategies for building a more resilient university. It is a framework for advancing a holistic approach to sustainability and resilience. It sets forth measureable goals with defined timeframes, university-wide standards, and guiding principles for action.

Our goals are divided into five topics. Discover more about our progress and supporting projects in the chapters below.
