Why create a Sustainability Management Plan? 

A Sustainability Management Plan (SMP) leads the way to cost savings, improved environmental impact, enhanced staff comfort and wellness, and leadership in the community. It’s about walking the talk, and building on two decades of employee-initiated sustainability efforts.


An SMP identifies sustainability goals, action steps, and quantitative metrics to track progress for a number of impact areas,” such as energy use and indoor air quality.

The SMP will impact many operational areas, and we need your help to create a plan that supports your division/lab/program efforts and is supported by staff across the organization. Staff input is critical to getting the SMP right.

Will this event be webcast to the public by NCAR|UCAR?:
