Why Partner with GreenerU

Helping academic institutions develop laser focus on sustainability—in their own way

No two schools are alike. GreenerU’s stakeholder-driven sustainability strategic planning process helps schools develop their own unique vision and comprehensive, achievable goals.

Our process unifies the initiatives and ideas under a shared vision and goals for sustainability, helping schools understand their role in creating a more sustainable campus. This process also connects different stakeholders and delineates responsibility for sustainability practices more broadly across the institution. Sustainability plans justify financial investments in emissions reduction and other sustainability goals.

With extensive experience in navigating complex institutions and ideas, our staff can help your campus prepare for a sustainable future.

Engagement from a full range of stakeholders—students, faculty, staff, administration, alumni—is crucial for strategic plan success.
