To work towards the Kyoto Protocol objectives, the Utilities Department formed the Kyoto Task Team, comprised of students, staff and faculty. This team meets twice monthly to steer the direction of energy conservation efforts and the study of renewable energy sources, with the overall goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Kyoto Task Team was formed to provide a means for accountability and the open sharing of ideas for pursuit of the Kyoto Protocol goals among facility, students, and staff.

Mission Statement
The mission of the Kyoto Task Team is to be the champion of the following environmental efforts.

  • Reduce Cornell University's greenhouse gas emissions
  • Change the energy-use behavior of the Cornell community such that our community better appreciates the impact of these individual and institutional decisions on the world
  • Through interactions with the University community, promote far-ranging intellectual and policy leadership on energy use issues, including the research and use of renewable energy sources to improve our long-term environmental sustainability
  • Conceive of, execute, and report on projects which further our mission, in an open and transparent way
