Harvard University

At Harvard, we believe universities have a special role and responsibility to confront the global challenges of climate change and sustainability.

Our students, faculty and staff are taking action through research that occurs across disciplines and throughout the world; through teaching and learning, by providing our students with the tools to confront this issue for generations to come; and on our campus, by modeling an institutional pathway to a healthier, low-carbon community.

The Office for Sustainability partners with Schools and departments across the University to set and achieve goals for a more sustainable campus, and provides tools and resources that help fuel discovery and action.

Harvard’s five-year Sustainability Plan, adopted in 2014, is the University’s roadmap for building and operating a healthier, more sustainable campus.
