For over 10 years, Santa Clara University, has focused on sustainability, starting with the implementation of a sustainability policy in 2004. In 2007, the former president, Fr. Paul Locatelli, signed the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment and since then, the university has projected that by the end of this year it will be climate neutral, producing net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.
Recently, many of the Santa Clara University graduates have signed a pledge to carry out their school’s social and environmental consciousness into their future careers. From their time spent at the university, many of the students at Santa Clara feel that taking the pledge is a natural progression.
