S&T Climate Action Plan

Goals and Best Practices

Missouri University of Science and Technology has set a goal to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 20% below 2010 levels by
2020. In order to meet this goal, Missouri S&T will implement the following actions:

  • Install a campus wide ground source heating and cooling system,
  • Retrofit older campus buildings with energy efficient technology,
  • Implement Thin Client computers and power management computer settings,
  • Demonstrate sustainable business practices,
  • Improve non-hazardous solid waste management practices, and 
  • Create incentive programs to encourage behavior change. 

Using our IS014001 certified Environmental Management System (EMS) objectives and targets
programs and the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education
(AASHE) Sustainability Tracking and Rating System ( S.T.A.R.S.) as tools to guide and track these
efforts, we are confident we can reach and will likely surpass our reduction goal.
