Pledges & Commitments

Loyola University Chicago has committed to a sustainable campus and student experience by signing four widely accepted sustainability "compacts."

  • Illinois Campus Sustainability Compact (ICSC)
  • The Catholic Coalition on Climate Change’s St. Francis Pledge (CCCC)
  • American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC)
  • The Talloires Declaration

 In 2012, Governor Quinn and the Green Governments Coordinating Council recognized Loyola as a Gold Level Compact School within the Illinois Campus Sustainability Compact program. After reviewing our original pledged commitments, the Council determined that Loyola fulfilled all requirements of the Gold Level compact.

‌This designation serves as a signal to community and peer institutions that we stand as a leader in higher education sustainability.
