The University of the Pacific is committed to creating a campus culture that advances a sustainable future among all members of the Pacific community. Across all three campuses, Pacific is implementing sustainable practices and engaging the Pacific community and its external constituencies through educational programs.
What does it mean to become sustainable? Sustainability takes into account the environmental, social and economic impacts of everyday choices - from purchasing paper, recycling, and equity of growth for all individuals of the world.
Pacific's efforts have not gone unnoticed. For the past three years, the Sierra Club named Pacific one of the nation's top 100 "Cool Schools" for sustainable and green efforts. Pacific has also become a member of AASHE Stars and the U.S. Green Building Council. Efforts has also included April becoming Sustainability Month where for the entire month we focus on issues of sustainability with a wide range of events at each campus.
