Sustainability at Binghamton University

Because it requires knowledge from every field, sustainability at Binghamton University isn't based in a single department. Instead, it spans the University to unite creative thinkers from across campus and throughout our community.

Commitment to sustainability

In 2009, Binghamton joined the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), a non-profit 501(c)(3) membership organization that empowers higher education faculty, administrators, staff and students to be effective change agents and drivers of sustainability innovation.

Together with AASHE, Binghamton University works to ensure that our world’s future leaders are motivated and equipped to solve sustainability challenges.

Climate Action Plan

In 2009, Binghamton published its Climate Action Plan (2.2mb .pdf), a road map for achieving zero-carbon emissions on campus by 2050.
