Green Graduation Pledge

What is it?

Nearly a hundred colleges and universities are using the Green Graduation Pledge. Each year, more than 1,000,000 students enter the work force. Imagine the impact on our society if even a small number of applicants and employees inquire about or attempt to change the ethical practices of their potential or current employers.

What if a small number of applicants turn down jobs and tell companies the ethical reasons why they did so? Shouldn't a job represent more than a paycheck? Shouldn't it be a place where one can feel good about both his or her own tasks and the general practices of the company? We think so.

You are part of the 1,000,000 students entering the workforce, and MCC would like to ask you to help encourage sustainability in the workplace by taking the Green Graduate Pledge. Visit http://tinyurl.com/mccgreengrad to electronically sign the pledge.

Be Recognized

Your pledge will be recorded with the Graduation Pledge Alliance (GPA). Their mission is to build a global community of responsible graduates improving society and the environment through the workplace. GPA works to help realize a world where every graduate, through the workplace, is an effective leader for social and environmental improvement.

Those that sign the pledge will be acknowledged during a slideshow prior to the graduation ceremony. Students who sign the pledge will also receive a pin that can be picked up in the Bookstore in May.  If you will be participating in the ceremony please wear the pin on your gown.  Please consider signing the pledge at http://tinyurl.com/mccgreengrad and help lead the way to a sustainable future.
