Graduating Sustainability Pledge

University of Utah Graduates


“I pledge to consider the impacts my job and lifestyle have on social equity and the environment. I will try to improve both of these aspects through individual and collective actions.”

The Sustainability Pledge and the associated green cords were first developed through a Sustainable Campus Initiative Fund grant to a student in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.

The Sustainability Pledge, in conjunction with the Graduation Pledge Alliance, asks individuals to consider the impacts their job and lifestyle have on social equity and the environment, and it encourages them to improve both through individual and collective actions.

Those who commit to the Sustainability Pledge may pick up a green cord to wear at commencement and convocation to symbolize their commitment. Through this pledge, the Sustainability Office seeks to build a global community committed to social and environmental responsibility.
