The St. Lawrence University Climate Action Plan (CAP) was drafted in response to St. Lawrence University President William L. Fox and President Emeritus Daniel F. Sullivan signing the American Colleges and Universities Presidents' Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). As a signatory of this initiative, SLU committed to climate neutrality (zero-net greenhouse gas emissions 1), and the development of a climate action plan (CAP).

The drafting of the SLU CAP was assigned to a working group which drew its membership, as proposed by Faculty Council, from a broad cross-section of the campus community, as well as members of the Canton community.
