Penn Engineering Green Team

The Penn Engineering Green Team is a compilation of dedicated employees who work to raise awareness about sustainability topics and change behavior within the Penn Engineering community. In conjunction with Penn Sustainability, we are committed to helping Penn reach our Climate Action Plan goals. We focus on conserving energy, minimizing waste, sustainable purchasing practices, and sustainable education. We work with students, staff and faculty to brainstorm potential sustainable projects that will find sustainable solutions to everyday issues within the school’s environment. The group was formed in 2011 by Leandra Davis, Director of Planning | Design | Construction and we continue to grow and collaborate with departments across the university.

For questions about sustainability at Penn Engineering, or if you are interested in joining, please email Leandra Davis.
