Reporting on Sustainability Initiatives

A Comprehensive View of Sustainability at UMSL

The UMSL Sustainability Office has recently begun compiling information on sustainability initiatives on and around campus. We've started to catch people "green-handed," but we know that every day students and staff are taking steps to lighten their impact on the environment.

For more information about our sustainability goals, please review the first Campus Sustainability Report and compare our progress since.

Reporting for the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment

Joining the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment was a vital step toward defining and pursuing sustainability policy and practices. To uphold that commitment, the University submits greenhouse gas inventories and progress reports on its steps to carbon neutrality. The most recent and comprehensive inventory to date covered 2002-2012, and other past reports can be found online in the ACUPCC Reporting System.

STARS and Other Reporting Tools

In the future, UMSL will use the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System as a reporting tool to disclose information about its progress. If you would like to assist with this project, please contact the Sustainability Office!
