The University of Minnesota Office of Sustainability provides direction and coordination for sustainability initiatives in the Twin Cities. We are committed to reaching our goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050 through inclusive projects, cross-campus planning, partnerships, and working with the greater community.

Our goal is to create a culture of sustainable practices. We organize zero waste events and collaborate with departments on campus to retrofit buildings that reduce our carbon output. We take pride in our ability to listen to students, staff, community members, and other stakeholders. Our office and efforts are not isolated.

It is key to our mission to remain accountable to the residents of the Twin Cities and include the broader campus community as we create a positive environmental impact.
