Oswego combines our rich institutional commitment to the environment with a thriving student enthusiasm toward sustainable endeavors to achieve our ultimate goal of becoming climate-neutral.
Our Climate Action Plan aims for the campus to be climate-neutral by 2050. To do that, we’ve established an Office of Sustainability. We have committed to and signed the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) to demonstrate both regional and national sustainability leadership by modeling our campus as an example of ways society can reduce their carbon footprint. We also have a silver rating from the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System (STARS) and annually utilize the Clean-Air Cool-Planet’s Carbon Calculator to estimate greenhouse gas emissions.
