Last year, CURF and GCP partnered to fund undergraduate research via energy savings generated on the Energy Reduction Day. GCP interns caught up with Lauren Brunsdale to discuss her research.

On December 14th, Staff & Faculty Eco-Reps hosted their final meeting of the year with an awards luncheon recognizing exceptional members who have gone above and beyond in their role as sustainability ambassadors.

Penn's Student Eco-Reps is an environmental leadership program for students interested in advancing sustainability through the implementation of campus-based projects. Students work as paid employees of Penn’s Sustainability Office and collaborate with our University partners to carry out projects in support of Penn’s Climate Action Plan.

Since the 2009 launch of the University’s first Climate Action Plan, Penn can look back on a remarkable array of accomplishments, and forward to a path of continual improvement in its environmental performance. Upon becoming the first Ivy League signatory of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, the University began the process of creating and executing a vision of sustainability at Penn.
