Sustainability

UVM's sustainability initiatives are developed and implemented through the Office of Sustainability.
UVM is currently developing a proposal for the Lewis Foundation to transform the University into a “a driving force that leads society by design to a sustainable and desirable future.”

The University of Vermont has an active environmental council, and the sustainability staff include a full-time environmental coordinator and a green building coordinator. In 2006, two students led a drive to change university policy so that all copier paper would be 100% recycled and chlorine–free. Recently, UVM started operating 2 new buses on compressed natural gas. Because of these innovative initiatives and others, the Sustainable Endowments Institute gave the University of Vermont an “A-” on its College Sustainability Report Card 2008.
