The success of the FM sustainability approach rests on collaboration and teamwork between FM and others in the university community. We work in partnership with Housing and Dining Services, Student Government (and the Environmental Center), Environmental Health and Safety, and countless others. FM staff also contribute to others’ sustainability objectives, particularly those that are based on an integration of student, staff and faculty interests.

Sustainability is much, much more than just a phrase here at CU-Boulder. You can read our Sustainability Resolution here (PDF).
