Environmental Impact Reports

View the previous Environmental Impact Report from 2018-19, which shows the ways in which UT has been steadily reducing our environmental impact while also saving the campus thousands of dollars every year. The Environmental Impact Report will no longer be published in a pdf format but instead all information will be available on the impact section of this website.

Sustainability Master Plan

The Sustainability Master Plan addresses the greenhouse gas reductions needed to reach our carbon neutrality date of 2061 set forth in the 2011 Climate Action Plan, as well as more holistic aspects of sustainability inspired by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
