The University of Nebraska-Lincoln will begin implementing a sweeping environmental and sustainability plan that strives to make the campus carbon neutral by 2050.

The 2020 Environment, Sustainability and Resilience Master Plan outlines UNL's "aspirational goals" to reducing its carbon footprint, building a "sustainability-centric" culture, and establishing the university as a national leader in these areas.

Chancellor Ronnie Green said the goals and objectives outlined in the plan are ambitious and reflect a bold vision for UNL's future.

"Our students, faculty and staff are ready to harness their creativity to build a healthier, sustainable and resilient campus in which to learn, innovate, create, work and live," Green wrote.
