Climate change

The challenge of climate change is something we face head on at Massey. Through our teaching, research and community engagement we draw on the strengths of our academic experts to understand climate change and find ways to mitigate and adapt to it. We are also developing a Climate Action Plan for the university that will help us reduce our own carbon footprint.

Massey University has approved a Climate Action Plan which includes an ambitious goal for the university to be net zero carbon by 2030. In order to meet that goal the university will pursue a range of initiatives over the next ten years.
