PennSustainability

Penn Sustainability is a University-wide initiative to advance environmental sustainability at the University of Pennsylvania, and coordinate programs to develop a more sustainable campus. Penn Green Campus Partnership (2007-2018) was the umbrella organization that was formed in 2007 to address environmental sustainability planning and policy development at the University of Pennsylvania and to coordinate programs and initiatives for a more sustainable campus. Environmental Sustainability Advisory Committee President Amy Gutmann's signing of the Presidents’ Climate Commitment in 2007 charged Penn to develop a strategic plan outlining the University’s goals for carbon reduction. To carry out this mission the Environmental Sustainability Advisory Committee (ESAC) was formed. The Environmental Sustainability Advisory Committee is a cross-campus collaboration that includes a representative group of faculty, staff, and students who advise the President on environmental sustainability issues. ESAC subcommittees developed recommendations for short- and long-term actions to address the Commitment’s requirements. These recommendations now serve as the backbone of Penn’s Climate Action Plan 2.0. There are six ESAC Subcommittees: Utilities & Operations, Physical Environment, Waste & Recycling, Purchasing, Transportation, and Academics.
