New sustainability resource
October 2, 2020 8:56 AM

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the release of a brief video resource about campus sustainability from the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE).

This informational video will appear on the University of Illinois System Ethics and Compliance website in conjunction with the annual faculty and staff ethics training. It will also be posted to the Illinois Media Space for use in your courses and beyond. By participating in this module, you will receive:

  • A general overview of several campus sustainability goals
  • Pertinent information about the Illinois Climate Action Plan (iCAP) 2020
  • Best practices for incorporating our campus-wide sustainability commitments into daily life

Following the video, you are invited to provide feedback about how the university can continue reducing campus waste, energy consumption and carbon emissions.

The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is a model for sustainability. It is our goal to continue leading by example and pursuing progressive solutions. We are proud of our accomplishments while also recognizing there is more we must do.

At an individual level, you too can model sustainable decision-making for your peers and make choices that impact the campus and community, such as: reducing food waste, avoiding single-use items and choosing to take, use and purchase no more than what is needed.

Our resources are valuable, and now is a critical time to make a personal commitment to each do our part to preserve and sustain them.

We hope you will take a few minutes to watch this video, respond to the questions and become more involved in campus sustainability opportunities.

Our actions do make a measureable difference.
