79 Colleges Commit to Lowering Carbon Emissions

Seventy-nine college and university presidents have signed the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, agreeing to cut their institutions’ carbon emissions to zero over time, The Chronicle of Higher Education reports.

Colleges that sign the commitment have two years, starting in June, to catalog their carbon emissions and lay out a timetable for achieving carbon neutrality. In the meantime, they agree to adopt several energy-saving measures – such as requiring the use of appliances that carry the Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star symbol for energy efficiency, or obtaining at least 15 percent of their energy from renewable sources.

The organizers are shooting for 200 signatories by June and 1,000 by 2009.

  1. Hello I am looking for CSR reports published by universities on their own activities. May you please refer me to them or indicate me on which site I may find them? I have found so far 2-3 on the GRI site but none from the top universities.
    Thank you in advance for your willingness to help
    Best Regards
