Sustainability Advisory Group for Environmental Stewardship (SAGES)

The Sustainability Advisory Group for Environmental Stewardship (SAGES) brings together concerned volunteers from faculty, staff, administrators, and the student body to discuss and take action on sustainability issues, ideas, and projects.  SAGES developed Wesleyan’s Campus Climate Action Plan in 2009, which describes the actions, policies, programs, and current and future measures that Wesleyan will take to meet greenhouse gas reduction targets and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. SAGES oversees six subcommittees: Academics, Energy, Green Building, Procurement, Recycling, and Transportation, which develop sustainability projects and programs that reduce Wesleyan's carbon footprint.
