Description:
CSU has received and achieved a lot of recognition in the category of sustainability. Remember, here at CSU, sustainability practices a triple-bottom-line approach - considering economics, social justice, and environmental justice for all of our projects and initiatives. Sustainability 101 at CSU will have three parts. First, the session is designed to answer some FAQ's: What do we do? How do we do it? Who is involved? Second, offer your suggestions and ask your questions: What should we do? Why do we or don't we...? And third, we'll talk about how anyone and everyone can be a part of this success.
Goals and Target Audience:
Learn more about sustainability efforts at CSU - what we do and how you are a part of the effort! No question is too small or too large - let's talk! The session is open to any interested faculty, staff or student. Thanks for joining the conversation.

Description:
Colorado State has made ambitious carbon reduction goals. These include the 2017 signing of the Climate Reality Pledge - a commitment to 100% renewable electricity by 2030. In addition, CSU has committed to reducing the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the university to zero by the year 2050. This session will provide an update on the strategies in place to achieve those goals and the progress made to date. Remember, the university's footprint is actually made up of our individual contributions so we will also explore specific measures that each of us can embrace to reduce our individual impact. Please join us!
Goals and Target Audience:
Faculty, staff, and students should all be interested in how their work here at the university impacts the environment. The goal is to keep the university community informed on progress toward reducing GHG emissions, and how each of us can help.
