WHAT IS SUSTAINABILITY?

Sustainability is the condition in which ecological diversity, social equity, and economic vitality combine to create a healthy and fulfilling community. Sustainability encourages responsible use of resources such as oil, building materials and water so as not to damage or deplete them for future generations. Sustainability is important in order to protect human health and our environment. PC Green recognizes that a culture of sustainability encourages students, faculty and staff to reach their full potentials.
