Sustainability at ESF
Sustainability is central to ESF’s mission of providing outstanding teaching, research, and outreach programs that foster sustainable communities and environments.
Sierra Ranks ESF #2
ESF is committed to developing creative and effective solutions to sustainability challenges and adopting holistic practices and approaches that balance environmental, social, economic, and technological factors. This commitment starts with practicing what we teach by exemplifying systems and best practices that improve sustainability on campus, in the local community and beyond.
Driven by a Passion for the Earth
Sustainability at ESF is driven by our passionate faculty, staff and students. Campus sustainability projects often intersect with coursework and research, adding synergy and expertise to campus sustainability projects large and small. The Sustainability Office and Sustainability Steering Committee oversees and supports working groups and initiatives related to energy, climate, land, food, transportation, water, materials, communication and engagement. All are invited to participate in the many sustainability initiatives already in action, and bring your own ideas and passions to the table!
