President Byerly and other Pennsylvania leaders encourage lawmakers to reduce carbon and improve clean energy Twitter
Lafayette College joined other higher education institutions and businesses in Pennsylvania to urge state leaders to prioritize policies that will accelerate a low-carbon future.
The group sent a letter to the Pennsylvania General Assembly to encourage lawmakers to consider market-based solutions that reduce carbon pollution and increase investment in energy efficiency, renewable energy, and clean transportation.
“As an educational institution, Lafayette is committed to preparing students for the future, and the future of today’s students will be defined by the crisis of climate change,” said President Alison Byerly. “Our Climate Action Plan provides a sustainable path to achieving carbon neutrality as an institution. We hope the actions of those who are ‘still in’ can provide a model that others will follow.”
