Lacordaire Signs Carbon Neutral Pledge


Dr. Hambleton had the privilege of representing Lacordaire Academy at the Zero Emissions Summit at Scandinavia House in New York City. The summit coincided with the United Nations General Assembly and brought together national and international leaders in government, NGO and corporate sectors to address the issue of climate change. In anticipation of the summit, I met with a group of students and signed the Carbon Neutral Pledge, committing to measure and reduce Lacordaire Academy’s carbon footprint in the years ahead. One World United and Virtuous Foundation was a chief organizer of the summit, and Lacordaire has initiated a partnership with the foundation in order to collaborate on programs related to responsible global citizenship. This initiative ties closely to our Dominican roots “seeking the unfolding revelation of God and embracing the sacredness of all creation.”
