Sustainability

PSU is dedicated to sustainability and recognizes that our impacts extend beyond campus. Acknowledging our impact as a major purchaser of goods and services, the Sustainable Procurement and Life Cycle Consideration Policy aims to ensure that University procurement supports the sustainability goals of the institution and models environmental, economic, and community stewardship.

In collaboration with the Campus Sustainability Office (CSO), a Sustainable Procurement Toolkit has been developed to help departments navigate their options, and make informed purchasing decisions. Contracting and Procurement Services will continue to work with CSO to develop training and additional resources for the campus to help reduce PSU’s purchasing impacts.
