COLLEGE PARK, Md.-- The University of Maryland recently released its Sustainability Progress Report, highlighting an array of sustainability achievements from the past year.
Major accomplishments featured in the report include:
“The university continues to make progress in its sustainability efforts and is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and environmental impacts,” said Scott Lupin, director, Office of Sustainability.” We continue to do this through extensive collaboration, broad outreach efforts and by building consensus-based strategies.”
