Pac-12 Sustainability Working Group

2018 Sustainability Conference


Composed of one representative on each Pac-12 campus from both athletics and sustainability, the Pac-12 Sustainability Working Group is part of the core foundation of Pac-12 Team Green.

The group meets throughout each year and works together to both share best practices and provide guidance to the Pac-12 Conference as to how each of its member campus leaders can work collectively to advance sustainability goals at their universities, during Pac-12 Championships and to advance the thought leadership of the Conference nationally.
