Description As Duke’s GHG footprint is a product of university operations and individual behaviors of the campus community, a broad campus-wide effort has been engaged to develop the plan to reduce this impact. President Brodhead has charged stakeholders representing the larger campus community as well as the key departments that would be most significantly impacted by our GHG reduction strategy, to form a campus sustainability committee to address this issue. The committee is co-chaired by the Executive Vice President and the Dean of the Nicholas School of the Environment.
