Sustainability Strategic Plan

UK's first Sustainability Strategic Plan is coming soon!


In the fall of 2016, the University launched an effort to create a 5 year plan for integrating sustainability with campus operations. The plan will focus on 6 key strategic areas:

  1. Materials Management
  2. Energy
  3. Food and Dining Services
  4. Transportation
  5. Buildings and Grounds
  6. Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction

Strategy teams developed tactics for each of these areas and in February 2017, shared these potential actions with the campus community for feedback. 

Following the campus outreach, the Sustainability Strategic Plan Steering Committee selected 5-6 tactics per strategy for inclusion in the draft plan. The Strategy teams then prepared detailed action plans, measures of success and identified responsible parties for each of the tactics selected. A final draft is expected soon.
