Augsburg recognized for Climate Commitment

submitted by

We’re proud to be one of 140+ institutions recognized by Second Nature for our carbon neutrality commitment and pledge that We Are Still In on climate change, even while our federal administration has pulled support for the Paris Climate Agreement.

Augsburg became a charter signatory to the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (now Second Nature Climate Commitment) in 2007. In signing this agreement, President Pribbenow affirmed our long- standing commitment to sustainability that has been fueled by the hard work, determination, and commitment of this community, primarily through the leadership of the Environmental Stewardship Committee (ESC) and our
students. With 100% of our electricity now coming from solar farms, we are making progress on our carbon neutrality commitment, but we still have a ways to go.

Thanks for doing your part in saving energy, reducing travel, and helping keep Augsburg accountable for taking bold steps towards structural, behavioral, and policy changes that mitigate climate change and work towards a world where all can thrive!
