UC Irvine’s Office of Sustainability
Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword at UC Irvine – it’s a commitment, a culture and a collective challenge, exemplified by the campus itself. UC Irvine is regularly recognized as is a leader in green construction to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, winning numerous national awards including being named Sierra magazine’s “Coolest School” in 2014 and 2015.
University of California’s comprehensive Sustainable Practices Policy, establishes goals in eight areas of sustainable practices: green building, clean energy, transportation, climate protection, sustainable operations, waste reduction and recycling, environmentally preferable purchasing, and sustainable foodservice. The policy was originally issued on July 1, 2004, and was most recently revised on November 18, 2013.
The Office of Sustainability houses Environmental Planning and Sustainability as well as UCI Community Resilience Projects.
