Ohio State signs climate action pledge

Ohio State is one of six schools in Ohio and one of more than 200 in the U.S. to sign the American Campuses Act on Climate Pledge. Signing the pledge demonstrates the schools’ support for strong climate action by world leaders at the upcoming UN climate change conference in Paris, according to a White House press release.

“The institutions signing (the) pledge,” the press release said, “are also already taking significant action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase campus sustainability and resilience, and incorporate environmental action into academic curriculum.”

Ohio’s other signers are Cleveland State University, Cuyahoga Community College, Denison University, Kent State University and Oberlin College.
