  • Recycling and Composting
    Penn State is committed to "closing the loop" on its solid waste through a program we call möbius.
     
  • Energy and Environment
    Using its District Energy System, Penn State consumes half the resources -- and produces half the emissions -- that it might otherwise.
     
  • Transportation
    The University is working to sustainably manage its growing transportation demands by switching to alternative fuels, reducing oil consumption, increasing the fuel efficiency of fleet vehicles, and encouraging the use of public transportation.
     
  • Purchasing
    Penn State Purchasing handles the procurement of everything from furniture to lab equipment on PSU campuses.
  • Living Lab
    A Penn State education goes far beyond mastering classroom material. The University’s 30 million square feet of facilities provide a “living laboratory” for  academic enhancementresearch partnerships, and student engagement.
