The Greek Eco-Reps Program

Greek Eco-Reps is a student environmental leadership program that promotes sustainable lifestyles across Penn’s Greek fraternity and sorority communities.  Representatives support the University’s Climate Action Plan through peer education, projects, and outreach events.  Eco-Reps strive to be constant models of environmental consciousness and challenge their peers to adopt a culture of sustainability.

The Greek Eco-Reps program is open to all student members of a fraternity or sorority on campus, and selected students will work together as a group throughout the year.
 

The Eco-Reps program is managed by Penn's Sustainability Office in Facilities and Real Estate Services and is part of Penn’s Green Campus Partnership, a collection of students, staff, and faculty throughout the University promoting better environmental practices and policy.
