Sustainability at F&S

F&S is proud to be an integral part of helping Illinois realize a sustainable future through implementation of the Illinois Climate Action Plan (iCAP) and related projects. Through collaborations with the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE), F&S continuously works to help campus achieve the Climate Leadership Commitments. Sustainability staff provide leadership, coordination, promotion, reporting, and a point of contact for several sustainability initiatives managed by F&S departments.

Campus Race to Zero Waste

Race 2 Zero participant logo
For the first time since 2014, we are participating in a national race for campuses across the country to show their commitment to recycling and reducing landfill waste. The Campus Race to Zero Waste, formerly known as Recyclemania, runs from January 31, 2021 to March 27, 2021. Each week, F&S will gather and report the waste data from campus, and iSEE will promote recycling and waste reduction across campus. Together, we can strengthen and show our Illini commitment to protecting the environment and implementing the Illinois Climate Action Plan (iCAP) objective to reduce landfill waste.
