UCSF’s Sustainability Action Plan was developed in 2010-11 to determine the focus and direction of UCSF’s sustainabiliity efforts to meet UCOP and UCSF goals. The Plan consists of the following:
1. An initial Baseline Assessment to evaluate the existing sustainability efforts.
2. An evaluation of the existing organizational structure of sustainability at UCSF.
3. A review of our carbon footprint based upon existing data
4. A detailed slideshow of the results and recommendations from several stakeholder workshops held to obtain input and participation from all areas across the campus and medical center. SAP4 Slideshow with Notes.pdf
5. An Executive Summary of all the work compiled by Davis Langdon Associates and the Sustainabilty committees (Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Sustainability, Sustainabiltiy Steering Committee, and the 10 work groups)
As we begin to implement the recommendations in FY11-12, we will continue to share the results annually on this website and welcome your comments and support.
