The UW Climate Action Plan has been submitted! In January 2009, as part of President Emmert’s leadership in signing the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), an Oversight Team formed under the auspices of the Environmental Stewardship Advisory Committee. The Team was tasked with coordinating the drafting of the university’s Climate Action Plan, an institutional plan toward becoming climate neutral. Teams of faculty, students, administrative leaders and staff across all three campuses worked together to develop the plan, which was submitted to ACUPCC on September 12, 2009. Stay tuned as the teams now turn their attention to implementation strategies, and for information on how to get involved.
