U-M continues to work toward our 2025 campus sustainability goals in the areas of climate, waste prevention, healthy environments and community engagement.
Reduce U-M greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent below 2006 levels
Decrease vehicle carbon output per passenger trip by 30 percent below 2006 levels
Reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills by 40 percent below 2006 levels
Purchase 20 percent of U-M food from local and sustainable sources by 2025
Protect the Huron River through stormwater-control strategies and reduce chemical applications to campus landscapes by 40 percent below 2006 levels
While there is no metric goal for community engagement, U-M is investing in programs to educate our community, track behavior and report progress over time toward a campus-wide ethic of sustainability.
