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.
