Sustainability at RIT
We believe in the power of human ingenuity and creativity. We know that good design and smart technology can be tools for positive and sustainable global change. We expect our inspiration to benefit everyone, everywhere because it matters to us all.
RIT strives to infuse innovation and creativity into every element of our campus, and sustainability is central to our success. With academic program offerings that include product and packaging design, clean technology and policy, business, and environmental management, RIT is uniquely positioned to be a transformative force in the creation of a sustainable economy. But our efforts extend far beyond the classroom, empowering student-led sustainability programs, community engaged scholarship, and regional collaborations.
As a signatory of Second Nature’s Climate Leadership Commitment, RIT has pledged to become carbon neutral by 2030. This commitment is a driving force behind RIT’s sustainability strategy.
