Wharton Sustainability Website Launches

February 2, 2010

In December, the Wharton School launched its new sustainability website, Sustainability@Wharton. The website provides a detailed look at sustainability initiatives across the Wharton community, including projects that have already been implemented and those that are currently under review.

The school’s initiatives focus on energy efficiency, waste reduction and recycling, green cleaning, water conservation, and sustainable purchasing practices. "We hope that this site will serve as a tool to engage the Wharton community," says Maria O'Callaghan-Cassidy, Director of Wharton Operations. "To implement a successful sustainability program, we need the support and active participation of all Wharton stakeholders."
