Macalester College

Achievement of Commitment

Between 2012 and 2015, Macalester College will be making progress toward our goals of climate neutrality by 2025 and zero waste by 2020. The college is guided by our Sustainability Plan (http://www.macalester.edu/sustainability/sustainabilityplan/MacalesterSustainabilityPlanDec2011.pdf).

How this will be achieved

This plan includes goals for increasing sustainability education and research as well as sustainability in operations. The college is committed to annual reporting on progress. We already annually report our greenhouse gas emissions and publish a Sustainability Update every two years. The Sustainability Advisory Committee, which includes student, staff and faculty representatives, annually reviews all sections of the Sustainability Plan. The Sustainability Office will be responsible for annual reporting on our progress in achieving our goals associated with this Declaration.
