The Catholic University of America is committed to sustainability.
Catholic U integrates sustainability across campus, from academics to student, staff, and faculty actions to buildings and grounds maintenance and operations.
In Fall 2020, the University released a 5-year sustainability plan. The plan is inspired by programs implemented at similar higher-education institutions. The initiatives and actions listed in the plan are intended to generate positive environmental change, promote education and research, preserve resources, raise awareness, reduce expenditures, generate exciting dialogue, and create new Catholic University community engagement touchpoints. This Plan will have a beneficial impact on the University and the world.
