The challenge of climate change is something we face head on at Massey. Through our teaching, research and community engagement we draw on the strengths of our academic experts to understand climate change and find ways to mitigate and adapt to it. We are also developing a Climate Action Plan for the university that will help us reduce our own carbon footprint.
A draft Climate Action Plan has been developed by an advisory group of students, academics and professional/services staff. This plan includes an ambitious goal for the university to be net zero carbon by 2030. In order to meet that goal the university will pursue a range of initiatives over the next ten years. Staff and students are encouraged to contribute to the development of Massey’s first Climate Action Plan through responding in the online survey, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or joining one of the meetings that will be held over the next few months. Deadline for submissions is 30th September 2019.
