  1. Updated Climate Commitment includes Resiliency

    Associated Project(s): 

    Interim Chancellor Barbara Wilson signed Second Nature’s Climate Resilience Commitment on Feb. 9, 2016. This makes Illinois one of the Charter Signatory campuses nationwide for Second Nature’s full Climate Commitment, which combines the Resilience Commitment with the Carbon Commitment the campus signed in 2008.

  2. iWG001 Resilience Commitment recommendation

    The iCAP Working Group (iWG) met on December 12, 2015, and made the following recommendation:

    "We recommend that the Chancellor sign Second Nature’s Climate Commitment, which adds a Resilience Commitment (addressing climate adaptation) to our existing Carbon Commitment (focused on carbon neutrality). This commitment would involve partnering with the local communities to perform a resilience assessment, developing resilience indicators that are appropriate for our campus, and incorporating resilience targets into the iCAP. Additionally, should the campus choose to sign by January 4, 2016, we would be recognized as a Charter Signatory."

    See attached the iWG assessment of iWG001 Resilience Commitment recommendation complete with comments from all the iWG members.
