A brief description of each sustainability office:

The issue of sustainability has long been recognized as an important issue on the LSU campus among administration and campus environmental advocacy groups. LSU has been proactive in performing many sustainable actions (Re: LSU Green Campus Initiative) that moves the campus toward achieving “climate neutrality”. This effort has been further advanced by the Governor’s signing of State Executive Order No. BJ 2008-8 which addresses sustainability of State owned facilities. A Campus Committee on Sustainability (CCS) was created in 2008 to present and include a cross section of the campus community. The committee meets quarterly in an effort to monitor the progress being made toward the achievement of the goals in the plan. The CCS is responsible for formulating and action plan to prepare a comprehensive inventory of LSU's existing carbon footprint, document LSU's existing efforts towards achieving sustainability, develop an action plan to improve LSU's sustainability efforts, and promote public awareness of LSU's efforts toward sustainability. The chair of the CCS is the Director of Campus Planning. The facililitator of the CCS is the Manager of Campus Sustainability. Both report to the Office of Facility Services.
