About Our Reports and Plans
The Office of Sustainability publishes reports to mark our successes and to outline where we need to increase efforts as they relate to sustainability policy and goals. The campus provides transparency and diligent data accuracy while streamlining our reporting to focus on the most material and measurable aspects of our work. We also look to third-party reporting and ranking systems, such as the STARS system, to gauge our performance and leadership in higher education.
In addition to sustainability reports and assessments, the Office of Sustainability publishes sustainability and climate action plans. These plans, along with others prepared by our sustainability partners, outline forward-thinking road maps for improving our carbon footprint, reducing water use, and reaching zero waste goals.
Importantly, University of California Sustainable Practices Policy and Berkeley’s goals and standards create aspiration and a framework for inclusive and positive future-focused growth.
