Lehigh’s Enduring Commitment to Sustainability

Climate change and its many consequences present a critical threat to the world today. At Lehigh University, we are committed to doing our part to address one of the greatest challenges of our time.
 
Sustainability efforts at Lehigh are intentional and inventive. The teaching, research and service of the members of our campus community contribute to a deeper understanding of our environment and of our responsibilities to it. The methods with which we manage our daily operations reflect the integration of just, equitable, and economically and environmentally responsible solutions into our internal practices. Campus-community partnerships foster a culture that supports sustainability efforts both here on South Mountain and beyond.
 
Our university plays an active and important role in the search for solutions to the problems of climate change. I’m confident that together we can build a more sustainable Lehigh—and positively influence the sustainability of our wider world.
