About SUNY Sustainability

For SUNY, the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts “ there are activities and efforts that only a system can realize, far beyond the capacities of any single campus. The extraordinary potential of SUNY lies in its diversity of institutional type and the diversity of its people; the breadth of impact on the lives of our state’s citizens; its credibility as a convener; and its willingness to experiment. This unparalleled “systemness” is our stock-in-trade as we put this very ambitious strategic plan into action, and it will be the key to our success as we work toward our goals of revitalizing the state’s economy and creating a better future for all of New York’s citizens.

Sustainability is an economic driver. As colleges and universities, we have the opportunity to influence students at very teachable moments. The habits they form while at college will be the lifestyles they lead when they graduate. Having environmentally responsible systems and activities as models at our institutions, creates tomorrow’s environmentally responsible consumers. As members of the SUNY system, we have the unique opportunity to create great change together.
