The news is filled with stories about the effects of climate change, as well as organizations announcing their carbon neutrality goals and plans as they seek to eliminate their carbon footprints. Have you ever wondered about Valencia’s plan?

Valencia recently formed the collegewide operational Sustainability Leadership Team comprising students, faculty and staff who are working on planning our path to carbon neutrality. The team will also address other critical environmental sustainability issues facing our College, ranging from grounds-related topics to transportation.
