Fellow Aggies, I wanted to share some exciting news with you. UC Davis was ranked recently as the 4th Greenest University in the World by GreenMetric Rankings! The University of Indonesia produced the rankings over a span of different categories including transport, energy, climate change, waste management and education about “green” sustainability. Among other UC campuses, UC Berkeley was ranked 9th and we were the highest-ranked university in the United States.
The news not only reinforces our growing global reputation as a leader in sustainability, but it also demonstrates our campus’ commitment to sound environmental stewardship. It’s because of all the hard work from our students, faculty and staff that we are widely regarded as a world leader in this important area.
I look forward to sharing updates with you in the coming weeks. I also want to hear from you. Please email me your thoughts and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try my best to answer you in my Ask Katehi column.
