Cornell’s Sustainability Leadership Summit is Dec. 17

Dear Colleagues,

In September, Cornell announced the formation of the Sustainable Cornell Council (SCC), a new structure to oversee campus sustainability and climate leadership goals and projects. The council, composed of faculty, staff and students, has met throughout the fall semester to develop a set of priorities for action in three areas: advancing our goal of a carbon neutral Ithaca campus, advancing sustainability across campus operations, and accelerating sustainable behaviors and climate literacy opportunities.

The priorities will be one of many updates shared at Cornell’s Sustainability Leadership Summit on Dec. 17 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Biotechnology Building. The summit is an opportunity for all Cornell community members to learn more about Cornell’s sustainability and climate change goals and to find new avenues for collaboration. Register here.

We hope to see many of you there!
