The Sustainable RSCCD Committee is a participatory governance committee, working with the campus committees, responsible for raising awareness within the district and making recommendations to the Chancellor concerning the conservation of energy and other resources and the implementation of sustainability practices that impact the district and community.
- Promote and nurture new patterns of thinking about college and district operations, practices, learning programs, support services and the relation to the local community that include consideration of conservation of energy and sustainability.
- Develop a comprehensive plan to achieve climate neutrality.
- Create institutional structures and identify resources relating to conservation of energy and sustainability to guide and support the implementation of the comprehensive plan.
- Complete an inventory of all greenhouse gas emissions and update that inventory at least once every two years.
- Encourage the development of curriculum that raises awareness about climate neutrality and sustainability and that offers a career path to employment in "green" technologies.
- Review the status of and develop objectives related to improving and maintaining the "green infrastructure" of the district and colleges.
