Why Should I Pledge?
The purpose of the pledge is to put Carleton University’s sustainability commitment into action and to encourage individuals to respect, protect, and preserve our resources. By doing so, we can ensure that future generations on our campus will have the same opportunities that we have today.
To reduce our impact on the environment, we need both institutional action (i.e. the Carleton Sustainability Strategic Plan) and individual action. By committing to the pledge, students, faculty, and staff can join forces with the University in our efforts to make Carleton more sustainable.
The pledge is one step individuals can take to live more sustainably. It is tangible, pragmatic, and allows the Carleton community to make a long-lasting and positive impact in our community.
