NYU is building a healthier and more sustainable future. Through strategies that span every area of university life, we aim to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, support teaching and research, and provide resources and guidance in establishing a culture of sustainability at NYU. We seek to have graduates across all schools understand issues surrounding sustainability and how their work can contribute to a more sustainable world.
