In conjunction with the UT sustainability, energy, efficiency and design initiative, the sustainability engineering class offered by the Civil Engineering Department will present a climate action and cost reduction plan for the University Tuesday, April 29, at 4 p.m.

The students’ presentation will take place in Nitschke Hall Room 1027.

The University of Toledo annually spends $21 million for its campus operations, including the purchasing of natural gas, diesel, electricity, paper, fertilizer and management of its wastewater and solid waste, according to students in the class.

Approximately 173,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases are directly or indirectly emitted from these operations.

The climate action and cost reduction plan is designed to reduce UT’s emissions by 40 percent by 2040 and decrease the University’s annual operating expense by $1 million.

Light refreshments will follow the presentation.
