Harvard is consistently ranked as one of the top campus sustainability programs in the country (Princeton Review and Sierra Club rankings), and was one of the first such programs when the first office was formed in 2000. Our goal is to lead the University in achieving its sustainability goals and to capitalize on the legacy of learning and discovery at Harvard by using the campus as a living laboratory for sustainability best practices.
