The purpose of this memo, prepared by the Conservation Council and Carbon Neutrality Working Group, is to provide information on the financial savings and revenue generating potential of environmental initiatives including carbon reduction efforts.

This memo was prepared for The Recession Response and Planning Task Group (RRPTG).  This group was appointed by the President with the goal of determining possible actions to bring our University budget to equilibrium during a time of economic downfall and budget deficit.  Departments across campus were asked to look critically at their operations for ways they could help with this deficit.
