April 20, 2018

Last year, Columbia introduced a comprehensive, University-wide Sustainability Plan designed as a multi-year roadmap to shrink the University’s carbon footprint and combat climate change. The plan set clear targets across a range of categories, from reducing greenhouse gas and energy usage to better waste management practices, improving sustainable transportation opportunities and campus behavioral changes.

For any plan to succeed, it must be measurable and accountable. To that end, this first-ever Sustainable Columbia Annual Progress Report showcases the important work of many dedicated Columbians to meet the goals and strategies established in the Plan.
