Climate Action Plan
The University of Arizona has been committed to sustainability since our beginning in 1885. There was no LEED certification then but our first building, Old Main, which is 120 years old and still is used today, was constructed with local materials and designed for climate control using common-sense principals. In 2012, we are proud to continue this tradition as a signatory of the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment.
