Explanation

The Sustainable Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System (STARS) is a self-reporting framework that, based on 17 impact areas, ranks and benchmarks our sustainability initiatives. We are currently ranked gold and strive to achieve platinum status. Aiming for platinum status provides the opportunity to continuously evaluate both our short- and long-term goals. Our goal is to lead by example and continue to be a model for other institutions to establish feasible goals and implement impactful projects and policies.
