Over the years, UT has made great progress at reducing the environmental impact of campus operations. In fact, the University has been widely recognized as a leader in resource conservation and environmental stewardship.

Environmental efforts at UT have accelerated recently with the establishment of UT Recycling and the Office of Sustainability. Moreover, environmental responsibility is a key component of the Knoxville campus long-range master plan and Vol Vision 2015, as well as the UT system mission statement (shown in part on the right sidebar).

This website provides information about actions you can take to help Make Orange Green. We welcome you to learn about the many wonderful environmental initiatives underway at UT.
