This Sustainability Impact Report was produced by the Harvard Office for Sustainability in collaboration with students, staff and faculty from Harvard's Schools and administrative units.
The Harvard Office for Sustainability (OFS) works as a catalyst for a change by partnering with faculty, students and staff at all Schools and administrative units to foster a culture of sustainability and use the campus as a living laboratory for innovation. OFS oversees the implementation of Harvard’s sustainability goals and convenes the community to share best practices and develop new programs and policies that strive to serve as replicable models to inspire our students and future leaders, and seek to influence the higher education, government and business sectors.
The OFS team in partnership with all Campus Services groups works to expand the integration of sustainability into operational practices throughout Harvard. OFS was formally established in 2008, growing out of a faculty/staff initiative, which had been in place since 2001.
