“Each green initiative on our campus diverts resources from unsustainable projects to renewable, cost effective ones. Beyond the savings and the environmental benefits, these initiatives also create learning opportunities and fulfill the Jesuit ideal to be stewards of God’s creation.” - President Eugene J. Cornacchia
In January 2008, President Cornacchia joined more than 650 others in signing the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) to acknowledge that Saint Peter’s University will continue to be an early adopter of environmentally friendly solutions. The pledge provides a framework to achieve long term “zero net carbon emissions” or “climate neutrality.” It is also a vehicle to assist the cultural transformation in the way we live our lives. From a Jesuit standpoint, in its service to justice and solidarity with all creation, the ACUPCC is a call to our highest sense of Faith and Identity.
