The Campus Sustainability Office, housed in UWB Facilities Services, promotes sustainable campus operations at UWB by identifying opportunities for improvement, facilitating operational changes for energy and resource conversation, tracking sustainability performance, educating stakeholders about sustainable alternatives.
The day to day functioning of our campus has a huge environmental impact. Every day, students, faculty and staff on campus use electricity, generate trash, burn fuel, and consume resources. The Facilities Services team and other partners within the UW Bothell campus community work to reduce the environmental impacts of our daily operation wherever possible. The primary impact areas for campus operations include energy, waste, water, grounds, transportation, and food systems. Explore the ways we work to reduce our impacts and create positive impacts in each of these areas below.
