NC State releases Annual Sustainability Report

NC State University’s Annual Sustainability Report is now available. In this report, you will find a dramatic overall increase in sustainability on campus.

Produced by the University Sustainability Office, the report highlights progress toward the university’s five-year Sustainability Strategic Plan, which was developed in April 2011 by the Campus Environmental Sustainability Team. The report features sustainability advances in the following areas of campus life:

1. Academics and Research
2. Community and Culture
3. Energy and Water
4. Green Development
5. Purchasing and Waste Reduction
6. Transportation

Many of these advances in sustainability help the university grow in size, quality and efficiency. That’s transformation NC State can celebrate. This progress in energy management, carbon footprint reduction and overall innovation may also be of interest to those in other public agencies or private businesses, so please share this report with others – both in the NC State community and beyond.
