In 2019, the University of Notre Dame beat its own sustainability goal by burning its last piece of coal a year ahead of schedule. Carbon emissions are down by 50% based on the gross square footage of campus, compared to 2005 baseline levels, a goal that had been set for 2030. Paul Kempf, assistant vice president for utilities and maintenance, and his team are always looking forward, working on ways to reduce Notre Dame’s carbon footprint. This virtual presentation and conversation will cover the past, present, and future of energy at Notre Dame.
Registration for this event must be made no later than 5:00 p.m. on August 25. Students may also register for a 30-minute breakout session with Paul Kempf after the event.
