In a recent article, GreenBiz senior writer Heather Clancy highlights the many sustainability achievements and goals for Arizona State University, a "driving force behind the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment."

ASU aims to become carbon-neutral by 2025, a goal already in the works with 72 solar systems, electric vehicles, recycling and composting efforts, and sustainable purchasing.

To guide ASU's sustainable purchasing efforts, the business and purchasing team uses an automation and process management application developed by SciQuest. The program is all part of ASU's "principled practice" philosophy, writes Clancy.
