Climate Change is a major issue today, and we at UMass Lowell are working to minimize our impact on it. High levels of greenhouse gas emissions are a major factor in climate change, and thus we are working to reduce our emissions as quickly as possible.

In addition to the more broad-scale issue of climate change, reducing the amount of airborne pollutants on campus also improves the outdoor air quality for ecosystems and human health!

The following pages will explain how we are helping to minimize climate change and other air pollution:

  • Background Information on Greenhouse Gases
  • UMass Lowell’s Climate Action Plan, and How It Is Being Carried Out
  • Tracking Carbon Emissions
  • Outdoor Air Quality
