Ole Miss joins SEC schools in signing Second Nature Climate Commitment

UM joins other Southeastern Conference schools, including Auburn University and the University of Arkansas, in signing the Second Nature Climate Commitment, which acknowledges higher education’s key role in shaping a sustainable society.

Second Nature, a nonprofit that collaborates specifically with higher education institutions on work of this kind, offers a climate commitment, carbon commitment and resiliency commitment.

The climate commitment, the most comprehensive of the three, has two main focuses: tracking carbon emissions to achieve carbon neutrality and creating a plan to address climate resiliency. This work will take place over three years.
