Sustainability Planning Guidebook & Resources

Penn State Sustainability created the Sustainability Planning Guidebook to make it easy for each unit, across every college and campus, to develop its own authentic approach to sustainability. The guidebook is primarily for planning teams at Penn State campuses, colleges and units. However, it could be useful for anyone with a desire to create a sustainability strategy.

Here you can access the Sustainability Planning Guidebook, as well as related resources for your planning. The Guidebook was newly updated in January 2020 and the worksheets within it can be completed digitally, reducing printing needs.


Thank you for your commitment to advancing sustainability at Penn State and for our planet. If you have any questions about the guidebook or the resources listed, please contact Penn State Sustainability via email:
