Mission Statement

The Sustainability Employee Resource Group (SERG) serves to create and promote a culture of sustainability at UCOP locations and focuses on UC Sustainable Practices Policy issue areas.


The Sustainability Employee Resource Group (SERG), formally known as Sustainability Affinity Group (SAG) was founded in July 2020 virtually since employees worked remote at the time.


To identify and initiate projects and programs that engage and educate UCOP staff on sustainability best practices and promote systemwide policy goals in recycling, transportation, energy use, waste reduction, and climate protection. SERG serves as a forum to discuss and act on sustainability topics through the lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
