Welcome to the site for Sustainability at the University of Colorado Boulder.
Our campus is among the top in the nation for its sustainability, conservation focus, and environmental stewardship. We provide information about and incentives for sustainable behavior in existing buildings, track the campus' annual performance, and invest in resource conservation and renewable energy for both new and existing buildings on our campus.
The campus' short-term goal is to achieve the Governor's "Greening of the State Government" executive order, setting targets for energy and water reductions, attaining zero waste and reducing petroleum consumption.
Our long-term goal aims for a carbon neutral campus, as stipulated in the Chancellor's pledge to American College and University President Climate Committment.
This site provides information about the actions you can take to make the campus greener, and the projects and ideas already being implemented on the path to sustainability.
