Sustainable Creighton Initiative
For Creighton University, the Sustainable Creighton Initiative (SCI) is an important next step along the way toward better care for our common home. The United Nations has declared “carbon neutrality by 2050 the world’s most urgent mission.” The Vatican has committed to this goal, and Creighton University is also deeply committed to the same goal.
