ACTION PLAN WA ST MANAGE ME NT

PROCUR EM EN EN ERGY

The main challenge to this initiative has been  gaining support from department administrators . To address this, the Yale team presented the financial rationale of particular suggestions, then asked if there was another member of their community who might be a champion and take the lead on developing a plan. In addition, the sustainability team used Pinterest to create a set of boards for the various schools; these contain news items, images, blog posts, and websites that clearly illustrate the connections between each discipline and sustainability. Examples include: www.pinterest.com/mbgoodall/music-sustainability www.pinterest.com/mbgoodall/nursing-sustainability www.pinterest.com/mbgoodall/art-sustainability

As each plan is completed and announced by its dean or director, a summary is posted to the Office of Sustainability's website. The plans are considered to be living documents, so the sustainability team remains in communication with each school about its successes and challenges, and fosters dialogue between the various communities. sustainability.yale.edu/planning-progress/department-level-plans
