This success reflects a strong team effort by senior administrators, academic leaders, faculty, students, and dedicated staff in many units across campus. This was aided by the development of a culture of sustainability on campus that has drawn wide support and commitment.

UMD is resilient in the face of a global pandemic and we will continue to push forward with urgent action on global climate change.

September 2021 - UN Global Emissions Gap Interactive

Explore connections between global climate change news and actions you can take today to help fill the gap. In 2017, UMD joined the “We Are Still In” coalition of over 1,000 leaders, including mayors, governors, businesses, and investors who pledged to forge ahead on climate action to meet the Paris Agreement. UMD achieved our goal to halve carbon emissions by 2020 two years before schedule. These victories are milestones on UMD's path to a more sustainable future and there is still plenty more progress to be made.
