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 these sustainability working groups, the many sustainability initiatives already in action, and bring your own ideas and passions to the table!
