Proposed

Plan for Organic Waste

The iCAP 2020 objective 5.5 is to "Develop a detailed comprehensive plan including implementation and operational costs/benefits to sustainably dispose of all food scraps and other organics by FY24, and fully implement the plan by FY33." The responsible campus unit for championing this objective is F&S.

Certified Green Event Program

The Certified Green Events Program was launched as of November 2020!  This program is run by iSEE and aims to encourage all entities at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign to commit to more environmentally conscious choices when planning events.

Event organizers can certify their events - even if they are held remotely - by completing any five elective actions among the following categories: transportation, energy use reduction, waste reduction, food and dining, or innovative options.

Certified Green Chapter Program

Welcome to the Certified Green Chapter Program at the University of Illinois! The CGCP is a newly-launched program of the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment, the University of Illinois center for sustainability-focused research, academic, and campus sustainability improvement. We are very excited to be working with Greek Chapters to increase the sustainability of Greek houses around our campus!

Off-campus Solar Farm 3.0 PPA

To reach our 2015 iCAP objective of 140,000 MWh per year of clean energy usage, we will need to increase our off-campus procurement of clean energy by 90,000 MWh/year.  One proposed solution is to enter into a power purchase agreement (PPA) with an off-campus solar developer.  This potential project is often called "Solar Farm 3.0" and discussions are ongoing about the costs and benefits of this proposal.

Climate Leadership Commitments

The university’s history of climate commitments began with an acute focus on one significant agent of climate change: greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The vices of global climate change include extreme weather events, air pollution and respiratory ailments, food and water insecurity, land and agricultural degradation, and social injustices. In 2020, curtailing campuswide GHG emissions remains the cornerstone of our strategic plan.
