Take Action

Main content start

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. In coming together as a campus community for a more sustainable Stanford, we can maximize our individual efforts to achieve significant results.

Learn more about our programs to see how you can be involved, whether you are interested in high-impact areas that require targeted support, conserving specific resources, or tracking (and rewarding!) individual contributions can be tracked (and rewarded!).
