At the University at Buffalo (UB), we work every day to
create a more sustainable campus and community through our
research, teaching, operations and our interaction with the
community. And we've been doing it for over three decades.
"While taking pride in the achievement this designation
represents, it also serves to motivate and inspire our campus
community as we continue to work toward fulfilling our commitment
to become climate neutral by 2030.”
Over the past year, dedicated students, faculty and staff have
been working to identify the university’s key sustainability
priorities and objectives as we continue to strive toward
integrating sustainability across all aspects of our research,
teaching, operations and engagement work. Below is a glimpse into
the draft University Sustainability Objectives and committee level
goals as put forth by the University’s Stewardship Committee
and working groups.
From researchers studying environmental issues at Love Canal to
performing cutting edge research on climate change in the Arctic,
UB is leading the way toward a sustainable future, and has been for
more than three decades.
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.
