Every year, Arizona State University strives to minimize consumption, maximize efficiency and reassess the traditional way of functioning to be more sustainable. ASU's newly released 2014 Sustainability Operations Annual Review shows that the university has made major strides toward those goals.
The review includes major highlights of the university’s progress in operational sustainability, as well as significant facts that support each of ASU’s overarching sustainability goals: climate neutrality, zero waste, active engagement and principled practice.
Highlights include being named in the top 12 bicycle-friendly universities in the U.S. by the League of American Bicyclists, having 3,740,114 gross square feet of LEED-certified building space and claiming the greatest capacity of photovoltaic installations of any university in the nation.
