UW Sustainability and the Campus Sustainability Fund (CSF) believe equity, diversity & inclusion are intrinsically intertwined with sustainability. While we work to center equity in our efforts, we recognize that we have not always succeeded and we still have work to do to embody all of our values. We also know this must be an ongoing, intentional effort.
Equity and sustainability
We recognize the inextricable link between equity and sustainability, and we strive to center equity in everything we do. The UW defines sustainability as “the capacity to create and maintain healthy, equitable and diverse communities now and into the future.” As we follow our mission to advance the university’s commitment to sustainability, UW Sustainability recognizes our foundation for this work must be rooted in social and environmental justice.
