Sustainability Council Report released
The Campus Sustainability Council convened by President Tony Monaco in January 2012 has released a report outlining its recommendations to reduce the university’s environmental footprint.The Council’s report renews Tufts’ commitments to greenhouse gas reduction goals and sets new ones focused on controlling emissions, waste reduction, and water conservation – areas where Tufts’ operations have the greatest impact on the environment.
This document will be the starting point for the next phase in the process: implementation planning, which will be overseen by Vice President of Operations Linda Snyder. The Council, co-chaired by President Monaco and Executive Vice President Patricia Campbell, was comprised of students, staff and faculty representing all Tufts campuses in Massachusetts.
