Department of Energy (DOE) Better Climate™ Partnership

In March 2022, the University of Chicago joined the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Better Climate Challenge as an inaugural partner reinforcing its existing commitment to reduce portfolio-wide greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030 and to share successful solutions and decarbonization strategies.

As a partner, the University is one of more than 80 organizations across the U.S. economy stepping up to the challenge and driving real-world action toward a low-carbon future. As the University of Chicago undertakes this challenge, the DOE will support its efforts with technical assistance, peer-to-peer learning opportunities, and a platform for the organization to demonstrate its commitment to being part of the solution to climate change.
