A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:

CSUN is committed to reducing its carbon footprint through the signing of the ACUPCC. Vehicles travel (both on campus and commuting) make up a large portion of our total GHG emissions. the following is an excerpt from our Environmentally Preferred Purchasing Policy-
Alternative Fuel/Ultra Efficient Vehicles
- Departments planning to purchase or lease vehicles are to consider and balance need, vehicle duty, fuel type, availability, the CO2 impact of the vehicle and the alternative fuel and/or ultra-efficient standards, and cost. The vehicle selected for purchase or lease should have the lowest CO2 impact (preferably all electric or hybrid), while meeting performance and budgetary constraints.
- CSUN will routinely assess the need for electric vehicle charging stations on campus and develop strategic plans for their location, including incorporating them into new parking lot construction projects or major parking lot renovations as justified.
