The Office of Environmental Sustainability
The University at Albany established sustainability initiatives in 2005 to provide leadership in demonstrating the University's responsibility towards environmental stewardship in our operations, curriculum, research, and administrative planning. Several programs have been developed including: energy conservation campaigns, recycling contests and farmer's markets. A Director of Environmental Sustainability and Energy Manager coordinate efforts and further propel the University as a role model in this field. With the signing of the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment, the University completes a comprehensive assessment of our greenhouse gas emissions yearly and is integrating carbon neutral strategies into our comprehensive plans.
