What Pitt is Doing

Sustainability Impact Areas

Established in 2018, the Pitt Sustainability Plan identifies 15 impact areas that help focus the University’s 60+ sustainability goals and key performance indicators for tracking progress over time. These impact areas are organized into the 3 themes below.

STEWARDSHIP

Pitt will care for both the built and the natural environment to ensure responsible and efficient resource management; we will continually strive to minimize the environmental impact of our operations.

EXPLORATION

Through the integration of a multidisciplinary curriculum, groundbreaking research, and social engagement, Pitt will educate every member of our community, support our leaders, and promote innovation.

COMMUNITY & CULTURE

Pitt will continue to strengthen its campus and communities by creating a culture of shared responsibility for our impact on surrounding communities, the region, and the world.
