Universities are training tomorrow’s leaders. We have the opportunity to create cultures of sustainability for today’s students, and to set their expectations for how the world should be. At the same time, we are creating healthier, cleaner, safer, and more productive workplaces for university employees and students. In providing real-world examples of environmental, financial, and social successes, we hope to inspire innovation and creative action in universities around the globe. GREEN GUIDE FOR UNIVERSITIES

This guide reflects both the challenges and opportunities of campus sustainability, with a particular focus on the environmental aspects of sustainability, and it offers key tactics and lessons learned by IARU universities. The guide is not intended to be all-inclusive, but is instead a set of examples, tools, and anecdotes to inform and inspire sustainability professionals – particularly if you are just embarking on the journey. 5
