UC and its Path in Fighting Climate Change

On July 30, 2019, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile signed a commitment to increase its contribution to curbing the effects of climate change affecting our planet. During the signing, the University President Ignacio Sanchez, the former Chilean Minister of the Environment, Carolina Schmidt, and other university authorities announced that our institution would become carbon neutral by 2038.

This agreement is in response to Pope Francis' invitation to care for our Common Home, seeking coherence between what is taught and the way we live and inhabit our campuses, spaces, and the planet.
