Ivy Plus Sustainability Working Group
Committed to advancing the commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from member campuses...
In April 2007, Yale University President Levin invited teams of representatives from the Ivy Plus institutions (below) to gather at Yale to focus on Sustainability and Greenhouse Gas Reduction Commitments. The Ivy Plus Sustainability working group emerged from that initial meeting. The Ivy Plus Sustainability working group is committed to sharing solutions that include the implementation of innovative technologies as well as research and operational methodologies that advance our commitment to greenhouse gas reduction on our campuses. Participants agreed that a unified effort on the part of the leading institutions of higher education to respond to one of the most pressing issues of our time, climate change, is essential. The Ivy Plus group is faced with the opportunity and responsibility to develop cutting edge model operations, engage top scholars and educate the future leaders on issues of sustainable development and climate change.
