KyotoNOW is a student-run organization that was formed in response to the United States’ rejection of the Kyoto Protocol in 2001. Cornell prides itself on being the first University in the nation to agree to independent participation in the international Protocol as well as later signing the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment with the goal of carbon neutrality. The organization promotes sustainability on the Cornell campus, as well as locally and nationally. KyotoNOW members are consistently representatives in sustainability task forces within our institution and beyond.
