We rely on vehicles to deliver products and services to our many customer locations. We recognize that reducing our fuel use and emissions will have a substantial impact on costs and the environment. We partner with our suppliers, vehicle manufacturers, clients, and governmental organizations to educate our employees on environmental impacts, develop ways to improve operational efficiency, and implement new technologies when feasible.

By 2020, UCF will achieve at least 40 percent rate for environmental, multi-modal transportation usage among commuters to campus.
