Kurzinfo:
Purpose
– The purpose of this paper is to analyze the development and implementation of how a greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction target at Yale University has resulted in broad and long-term institutional commitment.

Design/methodology/approach
– Interviews are conducted with key individuals representing those most directly involved in developing and implementing Yale's GHG target.

Findings
– The development of an institutional GHG reduction target calls upon a recursive process. A goal starts with a vision, followed by development, endorsement and implementation, and leads to institutional change. With change, comes new perspective to define a new vision. Upfront development of an implementation plan is critical not only for successful goal implementation, but also for endorsement from institutional leadership.

Research limitations/implications
– A process for the development of a GHG reduction target is extrapolated from only one case study. Further case examples would be helpful.

Practical implications
– This case study relays an experience that may help other institutions to implement their own GHG reduction targets, and other sustainability goals more generally.

Originality/value
– This paper highlights the importance of institutional goals in creating sustainable universities. A process by which institutions can follow to achieve GHG emission reductions is suggested.
