At the December 2008 meeting, the PSC voted to develop a carbon footprint reduction plan by the end of June 2009. Early in the spring semester, as the first step of this process, several of the PSC work groups (along with Environmental Health & Safety) formally responded to the 2008 carbon footprint report.

As I noted at the May 12 meeting, however, the planning process is behind schedule because hiring of the Sustainability Director has taken longer than expected. The work group responses will be assessed during the upcoming carbon footprint reduction planning course that begins June 3. Recommendations developed during the course will be made available to the PSC and Sustainability Director in August, with the expectation that a revised timeline for the reduction planning process can be presented at the PSC’s August 11 meeting.
Comments on the work group statements are welcome and will be taken into account during the summer analysis.
