The efforts of everyone at Stanford – students, faculty and staff – are crucial to creating a more sustainable campus. Riding a bike instead of driving, carpooling, recycling, turning off unnecessary lights, making double-sided copies, keeping the thermostat low in the winter and high in the summer – these are among the simple but meaningful acts that reduce our environmental footprint.
Initiated in 2010, the Office of Sustainability coordinates and publicizes campus-wide conservation campaigns – Cardinal Green – covering specific resources every season. Cardinal Green campaigns provide a campus-wide opportunity for individuals to be a part of Sustainable Stanford throughout the year. Students, staff and faculty can directly contribute to sustainability efforts by participating in campaigns – and earn prizes and recognition in the process!
