Annual Report Marks Johns Hopkins' Sustainability Achievements

Johns Hopkins University

June 9, 2021

 

Over the past fiscal year, Johns Hopkins University has reached several sustainability milestones, which are highlighted in the Office of Sustainability's 2021 Annual Report. These include a significant reduction of JHU's carbon emissions—down 30% since its 2008 baseline despite over 10% growth in campus square footage—as well as the university's trajectory toward meeting its 51% greenhouse gas reduction goal in 2022, three years early.

In addition to reflecting on the accomplishments of the previous fiscal year, the Sustainability Annual Report outlines the university's path forward in addressing holistic sustainability. Most notably this includes the development of a new JHU Sustainability Plan over the coming year, which will include broad engagement with the university community. The Sustainability Plan development process will seek to elevate the visibility of sustainability as a key university priority, develop next steps in addressing the need for robust climate action, and unite the JHU community in developing an ambitious, integrated, and measurable framework.

"In these times of tremendous disruptions caused by the global pandemic, the Johns Hopkins community has stayed remarkably committed to reaching its sustainability goals," said Bob McLean, vice president for facilities and real estate, in the report."In these times of tremendous disruptions caused by the global pandemic, the Johns Hopkins community has stayed remarkably committed to reaching its sustainability goals," said Bob McLean, vice president for facilities and real estate, in the report.
