Environmental Sustainability

Pace Law School recognizes the critical importance of environmental sustainability in today’s changing world.  Institutions of higher education can have broad impacts on the world around them. Pace, its students, faculty and staff, have a community presence and global influence. As an educational institution, we are in a unique position to be a leader in pursuing environmentally sustainable solutions. A coordinated and comprehensive sustainability program demonstrates our dedication to environmental and humanitarian issues.

The Pace community recognizes the on-going efforts that have been applied thus far toward achieving the goal of campus-wide sustainability.  We actively pursue a path committed to environmental and social stewardship and sensitivity. We strive to be a model of ecological and social responsibility by incorporating sustainability into the present and future ventures of our community.

The following policy statement signifies a comprehensive pledge to engage in practices that facilitate sustainability in campus purchasing, operations, culture and consumption:

Purchasing

Pace will implement a sustainable purchasing policy that provides structure, guidance and resources for campus-based purchasing in order to maximize the human and environmental benefits of our market presence and to serve as a role model for our community.

Operations

Pace will ensure that all operational policies address sustainability issues effectively by incorporating necessary changes into our organizational structure.  Pace will set short and long-term goals and establish a Sustainability Task Force to meet our requirements.

Culture

Pace will foster a culture of sustainability through education and leadership among our students, faculty and staff.

Consumption

Pace will reduce consumption by pursuing efficiency, frugality and alternative solutions in an environmentally sound, but economically viable manner.
