Our Commitment to Sustainability

Sustainability is integral to Grand Valley State University's strategic mission, vision, and values and the Meijer Campus in Holland is proud of its commitment to sustainable practices. 

Sustainability is about meeting the needs of today without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

To make sure that the environmental, social, and economic impact of our activities will create a high quality of life for our current generation and those of the future, we can look at them through a framework of sustainability factors.
