Students have been developing a variety of actions that align with the Plan and directly contribute to a more sustainable campus. It's clear that we all have an important role to play to help Santa Clara University achieve our Sustainability Strategic Plan Goals!

Get involved by viewing the Playbook based on your campus role(s) and choose actions today!

Anyone affiliated with SCU can earn 9 collectible Sustainability Badges to show off how you're building a more #SustainableSCU!

To earn a Sustainability Badge, you must complete either a) three actions in a category or b) one badge-earning action (which require more effort and/or have a bigger impact).

Please take a look at our calendar for upcoming events that are considered "badge-earning," such as our quarterly waste characterizations or Scrape Your Plate initiative.

In order to claim a badge, you must attend or engage with a selected event or program where a Center for Sustainability representative can give you your earned badge, or submit a badge request online.

Feel free to ask questions or send inquiries to
