More and more campuses, communities and businesses are stepping up to tackle sustainability.  It may be through participation in sustainability leadership programs like the following:

For Higher Ed

  • Second Nature Climate Leadership Commitments
  • AASHE STARS

For Communities

  • Global Compact of Mayors
  • STARS Communities

For diverse organizations and businesses

  • Carbon Disclosure Project

Or it may be a more organic or internally-driven process. U-CAN’s sustainability services are geared toward helping organizations engage effectively, efficiently and collaboratively in sustainability efforts. Our team of experts is deeply familiar with all of the programs above and others like them—the many “roadmaps” available for moving toward a more sustainable world.

Whether the focus is on greenhouse gas management, climate adaptation and resilience, key infrastructure (i.e. energy), or broad sustainability integration, U-CAN’s services are tiered around three levels of engagement: benchmarking, planning and solution implementation.

No matter where your organization is at in the process of tackling sustainability, U-CAN has expertise and capacity that can be tailored to your needs
