Campus Sustainability at LSU was formally organized in 2008. The issue of sustainability had long been recognized as an important issue on the LSU campus among campus administration and campus environmental advocacy groups. These efforts were advanced by the Governor's Executive Order No BJ 2008-8 which addresses sustainability of State owned facilities. Campus Sustainability was established to benchmark LSU's progress and facilitate activity among the campus community towards our sustainability goals.
