Office of Energy & Sustainability

About Us


In November 2022, the Office of Energy & Sustainability was created in the Department of Facilities Management & Campus Operations (previously Engineering & Maintenance) to work with faculty, staff, and students to implement sustainable practices. The creation of this group expands on the creation of an energy conservation team within Engineering & Maintenance in 2016, as well as many years of volunteer initiatives led by the Sustainability Leadership Council


The team's priorities are:

  • Comply with local regulations and the energy code.
  • Reduce energy use on campus.
  • Increase waste diversion and recycling.
  • Build a stronger sustainability culture on campus (supporting student groups, collaborations with other departments, newsletters, events, etc.).

Diesel trucks carry Manhattan's garbage 7.8 million miles every year. That's the equivalent of driving more than 312 times around the Earth!
