Campus Carbon Neutrality Roadmap for CSU Monterey Bay, CA

Optony was selected to create the Carbon Neutrality Roadmap for CSU Monterey Bay (CSUMB) to achieve campus-wide, carbon neutrality by 2030. The project team modeled the impact of CSUMB’s existing carbon reduction measures and identified additional necessary steps for the university to achieve its goal. Optony created four carbon neutrality scenarios, each focusing on strategies to reduce emissions associated with electricity usage, university-owned vehicles and the heating and cooling load in existing and new buildings on campus.

The Carbon Neutrality Roadmap was completed as a technical appendix to a broader Campus Sustainability Plan created by Optony’s partner consultant on the project.
