Climate Justice Action Plan

Climate Justice Action Plan

Advancing sustainability and resilience, through research, teaching, experiential learning, and community engagement, is a key priority for Northeastern University.

The Climate Justice Action Plan (CJAP) is a community-driven planning initiative, the purpose of which is to recommend a roadmap for Northeastern University to be carbon-free. Focus areas will include, but will not be limited to, energy consumption and sourcing, climate justice, transportation, climate resilience, and the University’s ability to affect change through its strengths in academia and research.

 

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.
