- iCAP 2020: Illinois Climate Action Plan
Key Objective: 9.3 Include iCAP in Strategic Plan
The iCAP 2020, objective 9.3 is: “Incorporate the iCAP in the next campus Strategic Plan.” The responsible campus unit for championing this objective is Chancellor. Progress is tracked in the iCAP Portal project page for Include iCAP in Strategic Plan.
According to the current Strategic Plan, “Appropriate, sufficient, and sustainable resources are imperative to our success.” While sustainability is included in the plan, incorporating the iCAP explicitly in the next campus Strategic Plan is a significant step in recognizing our sustainability goals and projects as a campus priority. This would affirm our commitment to reducing our environmental footprint and achieving carbon neutrality in addition to establishing a more visible culture of sustainability. Sustainable activities, programs, and planning are necessary components of our campus vision. We aim to be proactive in our efforts and continue to be an exemplary model in setting and achieving ambitious goals.
