With the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment taking steps towards achieving climate neutrality, the higher education community is staged to play an active role in affecting change towards a more sustainable future. Students, staff, and faculty alike have the power to implement new initiatives on their campus.

In 2006, Tony Cortese, Second Nature president, helped launch The American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment. The project is a high-visibility, joint, and individual commitment for universities to inventory and reduce greenhouse gas emissions with a goal of climate neutrality;  make sustainability an integral part of the curriculum and educational experience of all students; and publicly share sustainability plans and progress reports. As of today, more than 600 institutions have signed onto the challenge. During this general session, Cortese shares more information about the commitment and help union and activities professionals understand their place in its objectives.
