我们的承诺

The 十大正规网博靠谱平台 recognizes that one of the great challenges of our time is to make the decisions 和 investments — of both effort 和 money — that will simultaneously advance economic vitality, 生态完整性和社会正义. 经济活力, environmental integrity 和 social justice are deeply connected in both the short- 和 the long-term. This triple challenge 和 deep connection are embodied in the concept of sustainability.

认识到可持续发展是大学的核心价值, we commit to exercising leadership in our community 和 throughout society by providing the knowledge, 研究 和 curriculum to produce informed graduates who are able to create a positive, 公正和可持续的未来.

We will fully embrace sustainability 和 address climate change in our operations by reducing greenhouse gas emissions in our approach to managing the built environment, 能源, 水, 餐厅, 采购, 政策和运输业务.

通过将可持续性融入课程, 研究, 课外经验和校园运作, we will better serve our students 和 meet their social m和ate to help create a vital, 道德和繁荣的公民社会.

We believe that our commitment to sustainability requires us to work with community partners in the public 和 private sector to ensure a thriving local economy, 可持续发展的城市环境和公平的人类社会.

我们重申到2050年实现碳中和的承诺, as just one part of a holistic approach to becoming a sustainable University.
