Columbia has made great strides toward improving the sustainability of University transportation, both on and off campus. Emissions reduction from Columbia’s on-campus fleet vehicles through increased use of hybrid and electric vehicles will directly affect the University’s net zero emissions goal, while a reduction in business travel and commuting through innovations in videoconferencing technology and increased remote work ability will aid the University in reducing indirect Scope 3 emissions.
