A brief description of the policies and/or programs:

PSU's Climate Action Plan calls for maintaining 2010 levels of travel emissions, and establishing a local offset program to be used for 75% of PSU travel through various short and long term actions.

The Climate Action Implementation Team (CAP-IT) is developing outreach strategies to encourage emissions reductions in travel. This includes a website, as well as a future survey to go out to all those starting the travel process at PSU. Additional information goes out through a newsletter received by all staff who coordinate travel for their departments.
