Sustainability at SCU

Santa Clara University understands sustainability as finding the balance and illustrating the connections among a vibrant economy, a just society, and a healthy environment that meets all fundamental needs currently and in the future, especially those of the global poor.

The Center for Sustainability hosts events and programs, implements initiatives, and features stories that relate to helping the University achieve climate neutrality, practice responsible consumerism, develop a culture of sustainability and use the campus as a living laboratory.
