The University of Nebraska Medical Center and Nebraska Medicine have been building a strong foundation in sustainability over the past two decades as demonstrated by their campus-wide mixed recycling program, a significant reduction in recent energy consumption, and a campus culture that values sustainability.
This Sustainability Master Plan represents the next step for UNMC/NM in their continuous and integrated effort to consume fewer resources, even while expanding the campus, and to provide strategic direction across their operations over the next decade.
The 2015 Sustainability Master Plan update is complete! For an quick snapshot of the progress on our goals and where we are going from here, check out this infographic:
