Project History

  • 10/16/2020

    The iCAP Working Group met for the first time during the 2020-2021 academic year on 10-9-20. The group welcomed new members and discussed the status of the SWATeam recommendations submitted last spring by the teams.

    Morgan White, Associate Director of F&S for Sustainability, responded to Dr. Ximing Cai with the following email. See the attached file for an overview of the building envelope testing pilot project.



As part of the Campus Sustainability Procedures approved in June 2014, the Illinois Climate Action Plan Working Group (iWG) was formed. It is made up of representatives from major stakeholder groups across campus, and it has been tasked with a) reviewing Sustainability Working Advisory Team recommendations and transmitting them to the affected units or the Sustainability Council, as appropriate; and b) initiating a process for revising the iCAP.

You can read more about the iCAP Working Group at the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) iWG page.

Recommended policies and initiatives will be developed by topical Sustainability Working Advisory Teams ( SWATeams ), convened by iSEE and consisting of faculty, staff, and students. These recommendations will be transmitted to an iCAP Working Group ( iWG ) comprised of mid-level administrators and faculty and student representatives. Small-scale suggestions will be transmitted by the iWG chair directly to impacted units. Mid-scale recommendations will be evaluated by the iWG and transmitted as formal recommendations to units. Large-scale recommendations (with major policy and/or financial implications) will be evaluated by the iWG and then forwarded to the Sustainability Council for approval. The Sustainability Council will approve, modify, reject, or request further study of large-scale recommendations. These groups will also be used for periodic updates to the iCAP: sections will be revised by SWATeams, integrated by the iWG , and then evaluated and approved by the Sustainability Council.
