Sustainability at UNO

UNO defines sustainability as using resources wisely and engaging in actions that:

  1. are environmentally friendly, socially responsible, and financially feasible; and
  2. benefit present and future generations of people.

Thank You for Your Input

Since completing the Sustainability Master Plan in the fall of 2014,  the UNO Sustainability Committee has facilitated input sessions with the campus and Omaha community to collect feedback on the SMP initiatives. Thank you to all of those who participated. You have contributed to the progress UNO needs to push these new initiatives forwards.
