UC Sustainability Policies

The University of California Office of the President (UCOP) is active in ensuring system-wide integration of sustainability. The UCOP Policy on Sustainable Practices was developed to standardize campus practices and promote a more ecologically friendly and efficient use of our resources. There are several subsections within the policy including direction regarding Green Building Design, Clean Energy Standards, Climate Protection Practices, Sustainable Transportation Practices, Sustainable Operations, Recycling and Waste Management and Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Practices.
