UB has created a strategic plan to move the university toward Zero Waste. Our goal is to reduce the amount of physical waste that is produced across our campuses. The plan specifically focuses on how to improve UB's campus-wide recycling diversion rate and expand composting opportunities.
During the 2014 football season, UB students volunteered more than 390 hours to help UB Stadium go green, by ensuring fans recycle and compost!
Thank you to our awesome students!
By using recycled paper, you reduce pollution and demand for raw
materials. UB has been using recycled paper for nearly two decades.
We are proud to use 100 percent recycled paper in all our public
computing labs, and throughout our departments.
Aside from reducing your need for electronic devices, turning off equipment not actively in use is the simplest and most effective strategy to save energy.
Other energy saving tips include selecting energy efficient
goods and taking advantage of technology, such as power management
features or motion sensors.
