UNK Sustainability

Sustainability Logo

With its beginning in 2009, and a Sustainability Master Plan in 2015, UNK’s Sustainability Committee is leading UNK to identify and implement sustainability goals.

What is sustainability? It’s a complex concept. The most often quoted definition comes from the UN Bruntland commission: “sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

By focusing on UNK’s sustainability in development and operations, we recognize that resources are finite, and not only will sustainable practices support longterm human and ecological health, but our economic health and vitality.
