Syracuse University is committed to Sustainability

Initiatives for sustainability have been ongoing since the 1970s through energy conservation and have since grown to encompass all sustainability practices within the classroom and throughout operations at the University. Some initiatives of interest include the implementation of the Climate Action Plan, creation of the Campus as a Lab for Sustainability grant, the addition of pollinator gardens on South Campus, student-wide composting programs, student, faculty, and staff outreach programs, and many more!


Sustainability Management provides leadership to Syracuse University and the global community through the identification and promotion of sustainable practices that reduce the University’s environmental impact in an economically responsible manner.
