Our History

Fifty years ago, millions of people across the United States took part in more than 12,000 events to mark the first Earth Day.  That moment sparked a movement that led to great change. Here at UB, it signaled the beginning of five decades of advancing environmental stewardship and sustainability. To mark this occasion we have gathered the following key achievements that have occurred over the past five decades.
