Business-as-usual emissions trajectory:
To reduce emissions by 100,000 MT CO2e yr-1 below business-as-usual level, through implementation of 25 projects between now and 2021.
Every project has an opportunity cost.
Recycling, composting, bicycling, solar panels and other projects have important, non-economic benefits.
Faculty, staff, students, corporate partners, UA administration, alumni, donors, foundations, and government programs should share fairly the costs and benefits of implementing the CAP.
