InCEES cultivates external partnerships to provide resources and expertise to advance important climate initiatives.
The St. Louis Cross Sector Forum
On Aug. 28, 2018, InCEES and other campus partners helped to bring together nearly 30 government, nonprofit, corporate and public sector leaders from St. Louis to share their current efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Through a series of facilitated discussions, the group identified ways they might work together to benefit the St. Louis region and accelerate climate action.
A key outcome of the forum was the release of a shared proclamation, in which organizations agreed to endorse regional greenhouse gas reduction targets of 28 percent reduction below 2005 levels by 2025, and 80 percent reduction below 2005 levels by 2050.
