PLNU's dedication to creation care can be seen in our sustainable initiatives throughout campus. Below are some examples of PLNU's sustainability in action.
- In 2007, President Bob Brower signed the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment which states that our campus will be climate neutral by 2050.
- Our solar panel infrastructure produced 1513 MWh in 2014, enough to power 138 homes for a year.
- Our intensive campus recycling program includes single-stream recycling, composting on-campus and through Miramar Greenery, e-waste recycling, and donations. Last year we donated over 300 lbs of clothing.
- In 2009, our cafeteria went trayless resulting in approximately 100,000 gallons of water savings annually. We also use drought resistant plants in our landscaping, dual flush toilets, and waterless urinals.
