Sustainability at UNF 

In following with the Environmental Center's mission objective to "...conduct and support...projects involving sustainability..." we have provided resources for the campus community to become more involved in our efforts to promote sustainability within the community.

 

As part of this mission, the Environmental Center is a member of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).  They provide support by helping UNF to reach our sustainability goals and providing a network of institutions to work together with and learn from each other.  The UNF community can gain access to AASHE's extensive collection of resources and to professional development opportunities by clicking here.

 

The Environmental Center was also instrumental in encouraging UNF to become the 644th signatory of the American Colleges & Universities Presidential Climate Commitment (ACUPCC).  This commitment shows UNF's ability to exert leadership in addressing climate change.  It will also help UNF to stabilize and reduce our long-term energy costs,  attract excellent students and faculty, attract new sources of funding, and increase the support of alumni and local communities.  As part of this commitment, UNF is mandated to implement a climate action plan.  The first step towards this action is to create a Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory, which the Environmental Center conducted and released October 25, 2010.
