Seattle University’s Climate Action Plan

 From the moment that Seattle University’s Climate Action Plan was put into place in 2010, we knew that our goals were ambitious. We also knew that unlike many goals, sustainability would never have a final moment of victory – no single day when we could say, “We did it” and walk away.

We are pleased to present our first Sustainability Progress Report. The report highlights much of the good work that our staff, faculty and students have done over the past four years, and it gives us a strong direction for shaping our future sustainability efforts.

These efforts in sustainability are a foundation to build upon to achieve our ambitious goals. But our celebration is tempered by the urgency to do more, to do it faster and to inspire others to follow suit. Many milestones are yet to be reached in our quest to meet the goals of the Climate Action Plan.
