2023 Climate action Sustainability Update

PCC’s Climate Action Plan Update, February 2023 (view full size). Email sustainability@pcc.edu to receive this document in an alternate format.

PCC has made significant strides in our climate action progress and now it is time to update our 2013 Climate Action Plan (CAP). In addition to building off the progress we have already made, the updated 2021 CAP advances climate justice by setting science-based targets for carbon neutrality, addresses local inequities exacerbated by climate change, emphasizes resiliency, and centers equity both in the engagement process and mitigation strategies.

We worked with the firm GreenerU to assist in updating the Climate Action Plan. This planning process aligns with the college’s strategic planning efforts. More info on how we engaged with the community can be found below. You can also email us at sustainability@pcc.edu with any questions and learn more about PCC’s Commitment to Climate Action.
