It has been exciting for me to witness the evolution of campus climate leadership over the last 11 years. In 2007, when the Presidents’ Climate Leadership Commitments began, the early adopters knew they had to commit to zero emissions even though they weren’t sure how to get there. As signatories focused on accounting for and tracking their greenhouse gas emissions, they were able to make significant progress quickly. However, overtime reductions slowed – leading signatories to seek partnerships beyond their campus boundaries to fulfill their commitments. This has created opportunities, such as cross campus and sector collaborations for large scale renewable energy purchases. The Resilience Commitment is formalizing campus and community partnerships to assess climate vulnerabilities in order to plan and build capacity to respond to climate impacts. “We Are Still In” demonstrates campus leadership and willingness to work across sectors to reduce carbon emissions. And now the University Climate Change Coalition (UC3), a group of 13 North American research universities is testing a collaborative model designed to mobilize their resources and expertise to accelerate local and regional climate action in partnership with businesses, cities and states. It’s inspiring to see the higher education sector embrace collaboration in order to accelerate climate action.
