Sustainability at Trinity

Welcome to Trinity's Red Bricks/Green Campus Web site. The work to make Trinity a sustainable campus includes all aspects of the University's campus: buildings and grounds, student activities, curriculum, and faculty research. Trinity has been a signatory to the Presidents' Climate Commitment since 2008, setting forth a program to assure that Trinity will work toward carbon neutrality. Securing the future demands taking action today. Trinity is working to reduce our global footprint in energy and recycling, developing ways to protect our environment in research and writing, and training students to carry forward the work of making tomorrow greener than today.
