Sustainability at Chico State

Wildcats... Ride

Students, faculty, and staff commuting to and from our campus makes up the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions for Chico State, accounting for 39% of our total emissions.  It is imperative that we create a safe and accessible network of alternative transportation systems for all campus users if we are to meet our 2030 carbon neutrality goals.  Below are tips, resources, and information on how you can integrate alternative transportation into your Chico State lifestyle.  Wildcats Ride!
Climate Action and Resilience Plan
The Climate Action and Resilience Plan (CARP) is a comprehensive plan that will act as a guide for campus as we move closer and closer to our 2030 carbon neutrality goal. The updated CARP was formally adopted by campus in February 2021. The ambitious plan outlines a path to carbon neutrality, calls the campus and community into action, and creates opportunities for Chico State to serve as a leader and partner to our region.
