A Carnegie Mellon University case study on best practices for sustainable campuses was published in a report in collaboration with the International Sustainable Campus Network (ISCN) and the Global University Leaders Forum, and was shared at the World Economic Forum (WEF). Carnegie Mellon was one of 42 leading universities that contributed to the report.

CMU’s contributions focused on its commitment to ensuring that all of its students are stewards of the environment. Several examples included discussions of “Low Carbon Energy” that addressed advancements in both renewable and conventional energies at the Energy Science, Technology and Policy Program Symposium, the university’s second annual Sustainability Weekend, and CMU Energy Week (hosted by the Scott Institute for Energy Innovation), which allowed leaders in the field to gather and exchange resources and information. 

“Collectively, the projects described in our report, Educating with Purpose impact and influence thousands of people from students to community members and we commend the work by the report contributors to enhance the betterment of the world,” said Zena Harris, ISCN executive director.
