Penn's President Amy Gutmann signed the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) in 2007.

This pledge commits Penn to developing plans for significant reduction of its emissions of climate-altering greenhouse gases. Following the signing, the University launched its Climate Action Plan which outlines the strategies to achieve these goals.

Penn Dining and Bon Appétit are committed to supporting this plan by managing our food services in a sustainable and socially responsible manner.  A sustainable future for food service means flavorful food that:

  • Is healthy and economically viable for all
  • Is produced through practices that respect farmers, workers, and animals
  • Nourishes the community
  • Replenishes our shared natural resources for future generations
