Sustainability Committee

The Associated Students of Pasadena City College Sustainability Committee envisions itself as an ambitious, proactive, and optimistic body of student leaders successfully advancing the understanding and application of sustainability as the symbiotic balance of economic, environmental, and social wellness.

Active since 2009, the Sustainability Committee seeks new ways to bring greener policies to the PCC campus, involve students in community events, and stimulate a constructive dialogue aimed at increasing awareness of environmental and social issues.

The Committee has identified its chief objectives the design and use of a comprehensive sustainability assessment, a progressive zero-waste policy, increased accessibility to alternative transit, a continued series of documentary screenings to engage and educate students and the community, and an effective use of new media as an outlet to create a conscientious environment for students and the PCC family.

The Sustainability Committee is chaired by the Vice President for Sustainability and appointed members.
