Climate Justice Cornell is a horizontally structured 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. CJC promotes sustainability and justice on the Cornell campus, as well as locally and nationally. CJC has been instrumental in establishing and maintaining Cornell’s commitment to campus carbon neutrality. CJC continues to partner with identity and social justice organizations across campus, and stresses active allyship.
