Sustainable Campus

The University of California is committed to responsible stewardship of resources and to demonstrating leadership in sustainable business practices. The University’s locations should be living laboratories for sustainability, contributing to the research and educational mission of the University.

Underpinning this commitment is the University of California’s comprehensive Sustainable Practices Policy, which 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.
