Environmental Sustainability

Mount Holyoke College has a long standing commitment to environmental education and sustainability. The Plan for Mount Holyoke 2021 establishes four strategic priorities for the College, within each are elements of the College's commitment to environmental sustainability with the overarching goal to "amplify and promote environmental efforts as a commitment to the future of our campus and the planet". 

Environmental Indicators

To track our progress toward achieving these goals, the College has established six Environmental Indicators measuring energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, recycling rate, sustainable food purchase, campus land use, and storm water management. These indicators are presented to the Trustees annually.
