The President's Carbon Commitment
President Brian F. Linnane, S.J. signed the President’s Carbon Commitment in December 2015. As a signatory, Loyola has committed to developing institutional structures and long term goals to reduce our carbon footprint to achieve carbon neutrality as soon as possible. The Sustainability Committee of the Loyola Conference is responsible for developing the Climate Action Plan and will oversee the implementation of all climate action initiatives.
The Climate Action Plan
The Sustainability Committee is currently developing the university's Climate Action and Sustainability Plan, which will set the university on the path to climate neutrality by 2050.
