Welcome to the Institutional Sustainability Blog!

Institutional Sustainability can seem like a complicated phrase, but in reality, it is a simple concept that may help reduce both the environmental impact of the MHS and the bottom line for saving operational costs.

Sustainability is defined as “…meet[ing] the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." (Brundtland Commission of the UN, 1987) Essentially, the idea of sustainability is stewardship of the environment for future generations.
