Did you know that Oregon State University has consistently earned gold-level STARS rating for its sustainability efforts? Sustainability is central to the university's culture and mission, fitting in with that of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. From a diverse selection of sustainability-focused student clubs and organizations to cutting-edge research, OSU has built its community around sustainability. Most recently, the university has adopted a Path to Carbon Neutrality to guide our carbon reduction strategies going forward - this includes prioritizing energy efficiency, emphasizing renewable energy, and eliminating the use of natural gas.

Whether you're new to OSU or have been around for a while, we recommend getting started with a self-guided sustainability tour.
