Transportation and Fuels

All university-owned fleet vehicles, and landscape equipment. Detailed strategies to achieve these goals can be found in WSU’s Sustainability Plan

Preferable Criteria 

Replace all university-owned vehicles with alternatively fueled vehicles with a prohibition on the purchase of new light-duty vehicles that are solely run by fossil fuels after the year 2025
Install electric vehicle charging infrastructure to support the university fleet vehicle transition
Create a plan to replace all university-owned landscape equipment with alternatively fueled versions
Transition campus emergency generators over to battery backup systems to the greatest extent practicable and then annually purchase carbon offsets to neutralize the impact of the few remaining diesel generators
Source nearly 100% of WSU’s energy from renewable sources by 2040
Over time, phase in the purchase of carbon offsets to neutralize 100% of the impact of fossil-fuel-based university travel and commuting
