Sustainability and Climate Plan - Lakeshore Campus

Energy Plan Light Bulb

The university is engaged in an energy audit of the Lakeshore Campus. Our goal over the coming months is to identify energy conservation measures and policies that can be adopted to make energy conservation the university's shared commitment. We are committed to meeting our climate action plan goal of reducing energy by 10% by 2025, and helping to make a more just, humane, and sustainable world.

Please check back for updates throughout the winter.

Many of Loyola's buildings already employ sustainable technologies. There have been significant retrofits to heating and cooling infrastructure and energy efficiency upgrades throughout Loyola.
