About Us

UC Riverside's Office of Sustainability has been revamped this year, with Fortino Morales as UCR's newest Sustainability officer, Professor Matthew Barth as the Faculty Director of Sustainability, and Professor Brian Siana as the Associate Faculty Director of Sustainability. 

What We Do

Everyone wants to save the world, we're taking steps towards a better tomorrow by being at the forefront of sustainable policy. We are focused on how we can make our operations better, make ourselves more academically aware in our lecture halls, and making our research even better. We are refining policies that enhance our mission as a leading international research and educational institution. In part because of our commitment to the Inland Empire community and California as a whole. 


What is Sustainability?

Sustainability has been defined in many ways, but one of the most well-known quotes, from the 1987 Brundt Report, defines as follows:


"Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present

without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
