Saluki Green Action Team identifier


The Saluki Green Action team is made up of students, faculty and staff of SIU who are committed to helping make our community more sustainable, starting with energy and water conservation. Our team members educate themselves and their peers by taking simple actions and developing habits that make a big difference.

Our overall goal is to increase awareness of individual and group collective campus actions and to measurably reduce SIU's carbon footprint, working toward the goal of zero impact.
