University at Albany

Presidents' Climate Commitment

The University at Albany strives to achieve a higher level of sustainability and affirmed its responsibility to the environment by signing the American College and University Presidents' Climate Committment (ACUPCC) in May of 2008.

This organization is a high-visibility effort to address global warming by institutions of higher education with specific action steps and targeted time frames to complete goals. The commitment charges the University to develop an institutional infrastructure to support sustainability, conduct regular greenhouse gas emission inventories and devise a carbon neutral action plan. To date, over 680 institutions have signed on. More details about the pledge can be found here.
