Description/achievement of initiative

Portland Community College (PCC) completed its Climate Action Plan in 2009, consistent with our signing of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment. The college commits to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to below 2016 levels as follows: 10% below by 2012, 40% by 2030 and 80% by 2050. PCC’s Climate Action plan focuses on six major areas with actions to be taken by 2012 to put PCC on the pathway to meet its 2030 emission reduction objective. The six categories and 2030 objectives include: Buildings and Energy -- Utilize state of the art control systems district-wide to maximize energy efficiency, reduce our energy consumption per square foot 50% below 2006 levels, and produce 20% of our own energy onsite using renewable energy technology.
