The Transportation SWATeam is examining the Illinois Climate Action Plan goals and accomplishments in this theme.

The University of Illinois improved its reporting on air travel emissions between 2010 and 2015. A new baseline was established based on new reporting rules and techniques, and the 2015 iCAP will work from this more solid baseline in calling for a 23% reduction by FY20, and then an additional 15% reduction by FY25.

To make progress in this area, campus intends to implement a new campus bike plan and other sustainable transportation options and encourage carpooling and teleconferencing whenever possible to reduce miles traveled.

SWATeams report annually on progress made toward Illinois Climate Action Plan objectives in their area of focus. Click to view the Transportation team’s poster from the Oct. 25, 2017, Campus Sustainability Celebration.
