Landscape & Ecology
We will cultivate sustainable landscapes that increase biodiversity and enrich all ecosystem services, which are vital to environmental and human health and well-being.
Goals and Aspirations
- Adhere to Pitt’s Sustainable Landscape Design Guidelines in all new landscape designs.
- Increase tree canopy by 50% and replace 15% of lawn area with indigenous and adapted plants by 2030 (from 2017 baseline).
- Maintain at least 75% of landscaped areas in accordance with Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA) Standards for Organic Land Care by 2024.
