A brief description of the institution’s sustainability partnerships with the local community:

CSU, Chico's Institute for Sustainable Development has worked collaboratively with the City of Chico on community sustainability issues for at least the last six years. In 2007 City of Chico Mayor Scott Greundl signed the City on to the U.S. Conference of Mayors' Climate Protection Agreement. Shortly thereafter the City established a Sustainability Task Force with representatives from across the community - including two from the University. CSU, Chico Faculty and Graduate Students conducted the City's first GHG Emissions Inventory in 2007/2008. Institute for Sustainable Development staff developed the City's community-wide 2020 Climate Action Plan, which was adopted by City Council in Fall of 2012. In the year since the City has restructured its Sustainability Task Force, to be focused on plan implementation and monitoring, rather than development, and solicited applications for new membership. The newly re-established STF also has two representatives of the University.
