NYU’s IT Sustainability Initiative
Contribute to NYU's Sustainability Efforts
As NYU is committed to building a more sustainable future, everyone across the community can support the University’s overall sustainability goals. The University encourages your forward-thinking sustainability efforts across all aspects of University life. Turning off your computer every night, transitioning to a paperless workflow, or responsibly disposing of old equipment — all of your contributions will make a substantial difference towards reducing our carbon footprint.
