The Green Campus Partnership is 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. Penn President Amy Gutmann was the first Ivy League President to sign the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). The Green Campus Partnership includes Facilities and Real Estate Services, Business Services, the Environmental Sustainability Advisory Committee (ESAC) as well as faculty and student groups, including the Penn Environmental Group (PEG).
Environmental Sustainability Advisory Committee (ESAC):
ESAC is the advisory board for Penn’s Green Campus Partnership, guiding the University’s Climate Action Plan progress. Subcommittees usually meet twice a semester to discuss strategies related to sustainability on campus. This is an exciting opportunity to work with senior administrators at Penn in guiding the University’s sustainability efforts.
ESAC - Academics Subcommittee
The goal is to make climate change and environmental sustainability a part of the curriculum and educational experience for all Penn students.
