This week, Randolph College President Bradley W. Bateman joined more than 1,219 governors, mayors, business leaders, and colleges and universities from across the nation in signing a pledge to continue efforts to reduce carbon emissions and uphold the conditions of the Paris Agreement.
The climate declaration, titled “We Are Still In,” is a response to President Donald Trump’s recent decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement, an international commitment to fight climate change that was adopted in 2015.
“At Randolph, we have established and upheld a strong commitment to environmental sustainability and believe it is the best way forward,” Bateman said. “The future of the College, as well as the world, depends on a collective effort to reduce our carbon footprint and make the planet a better, cleaner place.”
