Sustainability

Welcome to the Swarthmore Ecosphere!

Swarthmore College has a long history of honoring the natural environment and working to protect both it and the people who depend on it. Our ongoing environmental sustainability work builds proudly on our Quaker legacy of shared responsibility, social justice, and resource stewardship. We invite you to learn how we are leading in the area of carbon pricing, taking significant strides toward becoming a zero waste campus, engaging our diverse community of students, faculty and staff along the way through service and education, and so much more.
