Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts has recently completed a Climate Action Plan as the school’s road map to carbon neutrality. The plan aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from campus operations to 50 percent below 2008 levels by 2015, and 100 percent by 2030. Since July First of last year, Bentley has saved 1.5 million kilowatt hours of electricity compared to the previous year at this time. Bentley is also a signatory of the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment.
