Data & Progress
We are using data to uncover new insights and drive continual improvements in how we operate our campus.
Students, faculty, and staff have access to several robust sustainability-related datasets that the Office for Sustainability and other departments use for reporting, analysis, and decision-making.
Teams of students and researchers have already used our datasets to pursue research questions in support of class papers, senior theses, and other research purposes. If you are a Harvard affiliate who would like to use our data for a research purpose, please contact the Harvard Office for Sustainability.
Harvard’s Annual Sustainability Reports were produced by the Harvard Office for Sustainability to update the community on the University’s progress toward meeting the goals, standards, and commitments as described in Harvard’s Sustainability Action Plan. Data is collected from individual Schools and departments and aggregated and analyzed by OFS.
