The university is committed to climate neutrality by 2019 and students have an important role to play in meeting that goal. By living sustainable lifestyles, each of us can reduce our environmental impact and lower our campus carbon footprint.
The Green Living Program is a student behavior change program that was developed to educate and engage students in shifting their priorities and behaviors to reduce the unnecessary consumption of resources (energy, water), to minimize waste generation (through recycling and reuse), and to take greater responsibility for their contribution to university-related environmental impacts. The ultimate goal is for Colgate to reach its commitment to climate neutrality by reducing our overall and individual ecological footprints associated with the behavior of our daily lives.
