Michigan State University is taking another step toward advancing its goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030 from 2010 baseline measurements. Through an agreement with Consumers Energy, the university will have support in eliminating 292,934 metric tons of carbon dioxide and achieving climate neutrality by 2050.

“This is another major milestone in pursuit of MSU’s commitment to achieve climate neutrality by 2050,” said Laura Young, MSU’s sustainability manager. “Every approach must be considered to reduce our carbon footprint — from the technology we use to leveraging our cutting-edge research and robust partnerships for greater impact. Opportunities like those presented by the Consumers Energy Renewable Energy Program only build on that momentum.”
