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.
