Steering Committee and Work Groups

Work groups are responsible for coordinating and driving work supported by the Sustainability Steering Committee (SSC).  Each work group is co-chaired and led by campus and medical center representatives who sit on the Sustainability Steering Committee.  The Sustainability Steering Committee is driven by UCOP policies, develops strategies, and implements those strategies through the relevant work groups.  Below are contact information, membership, and the mission of each work group for FY18-19.
