Sustainability Plan

Our New Sustainability Plan

WPI has had a Sustainability Plan in place since 2014.  This plan has served as a valuable guide for our sustainability programs and initiatives over the last 5 years. The plan includes a set of goals and objectives to meet our university’s vision for sustainability in four areas: academics, research, campus operations, and community engagement. However, the timeline for this plan is complete, and the time for a new sustainability plan has arrived.

Accordingly, WPI has developed a new Sustainability Plan to help guide our activities over the next five years. The development of this plan started in December of 2019 and was completed in the fall of 2020.  Efforts included: a Sustainability launch event to invite input from the WPI community; a World Café and other opportunities for community input; a set of working groups to develop goals, objectives and tasks; and final report preparation and review. We are thankful for the many WPI offices and community members who have put a tremendous amount of effort into developing the new plan.

We are looking forward to put our new plan into action! A summary of WPI’s new sustainability plan can be found here. The full report is available here.
