Join Us for the Pac-12 Sustainability Conference | June 26, 2017

Consistent with its reputation as the "Conference of Champions," the Pac-12 is the first collegiate sports conference to convene a high level symposium focused entirely on integrating sustainability into college athletics and across college campuses.

In the pioneering spirit of the West Coast, the Pac-12 and each of its member universities are proud members of the Green Sports Alliance - making the Pac-12 the only major NCAA conference to unify in support of sustainability through such focused action.

All of the Pac-12 athletic departments have committed to measuring their environmental performance, developing strategies and goals to reduce their impact, monitoring their progress, and engaging fans and communities in greener practices. The Pac-12 is committed to using the power of sport to promote healthy, sustainable practices to its campus communities and among Pac-12 fans.

This inaugural Pac-12 Sustainability Conference signals an elevated approach to enhancing sustainability efforts within collegiate athletics departments, designing new collective initiatives, and sharing best practices to transform college sports into a platform for environmental progress.

Sustainability and athletics professionals from universities nationwide will convene at the nation's greenest arena, the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, on June 26, to help the Pac-12 reach the next level of sports sustainability.

Call for Campus Posters

The Pac-12 Sustainability Conference invites proposals for posters to be displayed during the conference and highlighted during a dedicated part of the program. The goal of the posters are to showcase a range of ongoing sustainability projects and research throughout the Pac-12 via visual presentation of a topic allowing viewers to learn on their own while the presenter discusses particular points in one-on-one or small group conversations.
