Climate action planning

A plan for all seasons

Whether carbon neutrality, climate neutrality, or simply greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets are your goal, climate action planning encompasses complex components that can involve anything from energy master planning to mechanical systems overhauls to behavior change. GreenerU has the expertise to help you get there.


Climate action plans can take different forms: they can be strictly focused on targeting greenhouse gas emissions reductions through reduced energy demand, cleaner energy supply, and the purchase of offsets, and they can also encompass resilience strategies, sustainability planning, and economic and social goals as well.

How we can help

GreenerU’s combination of change management and engineering expertise can help your institution by:

  • Facilitating your climate action plan process, either in conjunction with sustainability strategic planning or in alignment with existing institutional plans
  • Performing ASHRAE Level 1 and/or 2 audits of your institution
  • Performing detailed technical assistance studies of your institution’s facilities to identify greenhouse gas emissions reduction opportunities
  • Gathering and developing baseline energy and Scopes 1, 2, and 3 greenhouse gas emissions data
  • Developing or reviewing AASHE® STARS reporting data
  • Developing comparable peer institutional data
  • Identifying and articulating paths to carbon or climate neutrality
  • Providing project management in implementing aspects of or the entire plan through turnkey or owner’s project management services
  • Engaging stakeholders for plan buy-in, publicity, and institutional support
Project experience

GreenerU has developed climate action plans or collaborated with additional partners to work with institutions on their climate action or carbon neutrality planning, including at Southern New Hampshire University, University of Massachusetts Amherst, Portland Community College, Hampshire College, Bentley University, and University of Massachusetts Medical School.
