2007 Annual Report

The FY 2007 Annual Report (PDF) was released in May 2008. In addition to a snapshot of all signatory reports received by December 31, 2007, the 2007 Annual Report includes a collection of brief stories from select ACUPCC institutions describing exciting climate and energy successes on their campuses related to ACUPCC implementation.

The stories are taken from longer stories describing exciting climate and energy successes related to ACUPCC implementation. We didn’t have space to include the full text of these stories in the Annual Report, but the stories are so inspiring and informative that we’ve decided to make them available as a special companion publication (PDF).

Global warming is a defining issue of the 21st century, and higher education must be a leader in addressing global climate change through research, education, and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
