Why Climate Justice?

Underlying the Climate Justice Action Plan will be a focus on social, environmental, and economic justice, which means Northeastern University will recognize its comparative role in its contributions to the climate crisis, the disproportionate impact of climate disruptions to and capacity to adapt by marginalized populations, and the transformative change necessary to address historic inequities and achieve equitable outcomes.
