CACS first met in October 2003, and within a year hosted the first annual UC Berkeley Sustainability Summit. Since then, CACS has hosted a UC Berkeley Sustainability Summit every April during Earth Week. These events serve to gather the campus sustainability community, to honor achievements with Sustainability Awards, to give general community members the chance to green their campus with Green Fund Grants, and to highlight major initiatives.
