Green Week: Fall 2022

Join us as we kick off our third campus Green Week, October 3-8.

At BYU, sustainability is central to our purpose and integral to our faith. Watch our video.

BYU Sustainability: Central to our Purpose, Integral to our Faith

BYU students, faculty, and staff share what sustainability means to them, answering the question, "What is BYU doing to conserve resources, improve health, and increase understanding at a critical time for the university and the world?" This video features Dr. Ben Abbott, professor of ecosystem ecology; Eliza Estes, a biodiversity and conservation major who worked in the Sustainability Office when this film was produced; Mahina Piena, a civil and environmental engineering major; and Eric Lemus, an environmental law student. Infigo Films, a local production company founded by BYU graduates, shot and directed the film.

Our Mission (under revision)

Brigham Young University believes that, along with our responsibility to educate students and to prudently use the sacred funds entrusted to us, we have a responsibility to be wise stewards of the earth and its resources. "The Lord said, 'For it is expedient that I, the Lord, should make every man accountable, as a steward over earthly blessings, which I have made and prepared for my creatures'” (Doctrine & Covenants 104:13).

At BYU, this means we pursue opportunities for sustainability that we believe make a genuine difference and that also makes economic sense. We make sustainability a reality on campus through the concerted efforts of students, faculty, staff, alumni, vendors, partners, and university leadership.
