Welcome to Stanford—a campus that cares deeply about responsible and environmentally sustainable resource use. We believe sustainability means meeting the needs for today in a responsible fashion that does not compromise the ability to meet the needs of our future.

Stanford researchers are uncovering policy and technological solutions to climate change, greener buildings, and renewable energy. Stanford staff members lead by example and use environmental sustainability as a criterion for all aspects of university operations.

Certified as a green business in 2004, in 2008-2009 Stanford was the only school in California to receive the highest ranking for leadership in sustainability out of 300 colleges and universities surveyed in North America. As we continue to seek innovative and lasting solutions to reduce our environmental footprint, we invite you, the most important stakeholder, to be an active part of that journey.

This guide has been created by your fellow students with help from campus staff to provide you with some easy tips on an eco-friendly lifestyle on campus. The actions your friends share as they welcome you to campus greatly complement the efforts underway by administration and staff. In this guide you will see examples of specific accomplishments in campus sustainability, and things you can do deepen their impacts. Not every aspect is included in this booklet, and with your help we will enrich the content every year.

With your enthusiasm, support, and creativity, we look forward to getting even closer to achieving a shared vision-—a truly sustainable Stanford University; your learning environment for the next four momentous years.
