Focus on Environmental Sustainability
UW Facilities Services is a recognized leader in sustainable campus management and a critical part of the University of Washington’s Climate Action Plan. As the stewards of a world-renown research University, we value innovation and strive to develop creative solutions and test new ideas. We serve the University and the larger community by continually improving our practices and modeling the sustainable management of buildings, grounds, energy, water and transportation systems.
