WMU wins 2014 Climate Leadership Award

WMU has won the 2014 Climate Leadership Award, given by Second Nature.

The awards are presented annually to signatory institutions of the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) that demonstrate innovative and advanced leadership in education for sustainability and climate mitigation and adaptation.

Western has shown leadership in making sure that all recent building projects meet the highest standards of energy conservation. WMU has a plan to reach carbon neutrality in all its operations by mid-century. It has also been a leader in climate education, hosting a large number of talks, forums, even an art show, culminating in a campus visit by Bill McKibben last fall.
