Chatham University's Climate Commitment

The mission of the Chatham University Campus Climate Commitment Committee is to reduce the University’s carbon footprint and achieve sustainability in energy use as described in the Presidents’ Climate Commitment with communication and involvement of the entire Chatham community.

The Committee will achieve this mission through cost –practical strategies and tactics based on the collection and analysis of empirical data and the implementation of emissions-reducing programs.

We hope that by achieving this goal we are setting a visible example for all of our campus community to follow in our own lives, as well as making a significant, if small, contribution to reducing the impact of global warming. This committee is fulfilling an important part of our larger vision to increase the general environmental sustainability in campus resource use.
