  • Encourage decisions at all levels within the University to be made with social and environmental impact as a priority.
  • Ensure that our local community, peer institutions, and other aligned organizations look to Penn as an exemplary partner in sustainability.
  • Enable faculty, staff, and students to collaborate to advance sustainability and climate action at the University and in the community. 
  • Empower Penn community members play a central role in creating a sustainable community that centers humanity and justice in balance with planetary needs.
