Sustainability Overview


The University of Colorado Denver and the CU Anschutz Medical Campus recognizes that a sustainable approach to creating and maintaining the university is the only way that we will be able to continue to provide a high quality education for current and future students.

Sustainability can be defined in many different ways, but commonly refers to using physical resources in a wise and efficient way today so that those resources will be here for future generations. The energy we use to heat and cool our buildings, the water we use for our lawns and indoor plumbing, the fuel we use for our vehicles are all finite resources and the quantity and quality of those resources will dissipate if we do not take action now to conserve them.
