The University of California launched the TomKat UC Carbon Neutrality Project with a $300,000 gift from the TomKat Foundation which seeks to develop solutions to combat climate change. The project was introduced in June 2016 and aims to achieve zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2025. Project director David Auston says, “the project will assemble multi-disciplinary teams of leading experts, each dedicated to finding solutions to the most challenging aspects of climate change.”
