Knox College is committed to creating and nurturing a culture of sustainability.  We believe that such a culture includes:
  • Recogniton the humans are a part of nature and need to live in balance with Earth's ecosystems.
  • Reduced consumption of natural resources to a replinishable rate.
  • Reduced generation of waste to a rate at which the environment can assimilate it.
  • Decision making that gives equal weight to natural, social, and economic systems.
  • Commitment to place, including conservation and equity in distribution of local resources.
We believe that doing our part will ensure the well-being of future generations
