The University of California, Irvine is committed to sustainable practices that minimize the campus' "ecological footprint" and conserve finite resources for future generations.

We strive to engage students, faculty, staff, the community, and other institutions in the pursuit of common solutions to address social, cultural, and economic needs while protecting the beauty and resources of the natural world around us.
