Note from President Gertler
The Committee on the Environment, Climate Change, and Sustainability (CECCS) was struck in February 27, 2017, after being first proposed in my report Beyond Divestment: Taking Decisive Action on Climate Change.
The Committee’s mandate is to identify ways to advance the University’s contributions to meeting the challenges of climate change and sustainability, with a particular focus on research and innovation, teaching, and University operations.
I am pleased to share the Committee’s first annual report, outlining activities undertaken in its first three months of operation. I would also like to thank committee members for a productive start.
