Two goals of the Talloires Network that relate to sustainability are to foster partnerships between institutions of higher education to increase the relevance of higher education, and facilitate the creation of regional networks of universities dedicated to civic engagement and sustainability. Energy managers and other facilities managers meet regularly with their counterparts from other CSU campuses to discuss issues related to sustainability.
