The American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment and its almost 700 signatories have made some remarkable strides combating climate change, according to Celebrating Five Years of Climate Leadership, the ACUPCC’s five-year report.
The report quantifies the progress of the initiative, which represents an agreement between nearly 700 colleges and universities to promote sustainability through teaching and action. These actions include reducing carbon emissions on their campuses; deploying sustainable practices; revising their curricula and culture to raise awareness of sustainability in students and graduates; sponsoring research and developing best case practices; and engaging local economies and communities.
The report was released in conjunction with the ACUPCC’s annual Climate Leadership Summit, which was held at American University in Washington, DC in June. The report’s highlights include:
The report also offers 21 case studies that showcase institutional success stories that highlight achievements in preparedness, opportunity and innovation.
