PA-1: Sustainability Coordination
|1.00 / 1.00||
Director of Sustainability
Office of Sustainability
Institution has at least one sustainability committee, office, and/or officer tasked by the administration or governing body to advise on and implement policies and programs related to sustainability on campus. The committee, office, and/or officer focuses on sustainability broadly (i.e. not just one sustainability issue, such as climate change) and covers the entire institution.
An institution that has multiple committees, offices and/or staff with responsibility for subsets of the institution (e.g. schools or departments) may earn points for this credit if it has a mechanism for broad sustainability coordination for the entire campus (e.g. a coordinating committee or the equivalent). A committee, office, and/or officer that focuses on one aspect of sustainability (e.g. an energy efficiency committee) or has jurisdiction over only a part of the institution (e.g. “Academic Affairs Sustainability Taskforce”) does not count toward scoring in the absence of institution-wide coordination.
This credit applies to all institutions.
Institutions earn 1 point for having at least one committee, office, and/or officer that meets the criteria outlined above. Partial points are not available for this credit.
Report on current sustainability committee composition and practices, office status, and/or officer position status at the time of submission.
