In November 2007, the Environmental Stewardship Committee (ESC) was created to direct UB’s efforts toward fulfilling our commitment of achieving climate neutrality and ensuring that UB is moving toward sustainability.
The Office of Sustainability works with a broad range of campus and community groups, including the UB Environmental Stewardship Committee, to facilitate the university's Climate Action Plan (PDF), which calls for UB to achieve climate neutrality by 2030.
Sustainable Futures, a service learning program in architecture,
landscape architecture and planning, is conducted in
Monteverde, Costa Rica and hosted by the Monteverde Institute, the
University at Buffalo, and other universities.
