About Columbia's Sustainability Plan
The Columbia University Sustainability Plan is the University’s first formalized document bringing together sustainability efforts from myriad departments around campus. It is the result of a 16-month focused collaboration with students, faculty, administrators, and scientists working across departments to create a three-year, operations-focused roadmap to create a more sustainable campus.
"Columbia’s leadership must continue to be reflected not only through the towering scholarship of our climate experts, but also through the ways in which we consume energy where we live, learn, and conduct research."
- President Lee C. Bollinger
What is Sustainable Columbia?
Sustainable Columbia is the brand identity for Columbia University’s campus sustainability initiative, centralized through the Environmental Stewardship office and executed by a variety of University departments and projects. The Sustainable Columbia mark visually connects the many programs on campus that contribute to the success of our campus sustainability efforts by helping meet the goals set forth in this Plan.
