Awareness, Commitment, Tracking, and Sustainability at the Claremont Colleges

In the spring of 2020 the President’s Executive Cabinet (PEC) authorized the establishment a committee with broad staff, faculty, and student representation to serve as an advisory group to the PEC regarding the College’s environment and sustainability policies and practices. The committee’s name, CMC ACTS, serves as an acronym for its four areas of focus: Awareness, Commitment, Tracking, and Sustainability.

American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment

American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment

In 2007 Claremont McKenna joined over 250 charter signatory higher education institutions in their dedication to the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). In doing so, Claremont McKenna College joined six of its peer institutions and many other prestigious colleges and research universities in committing to studying the causes of carbon generation and charting an achievable course that will mitigate greenhouse gas emissions (GHG’s) and ultimately achieve carbon neutrality for the campus. Signatory institutions now number 685.

With a commitment to the ACUPCC, CMC recognizes its position among these institutional peers as well as the position its faculty, students, and staff have in the role of providing leadership and guidance to the local community when it comes to climate change. Leading the community in this effort fits squarely into the educational, research, and public service missions of CMC.
