Green Campus

It is critical to not just shift our campus culture towards increasingly sustainable engagement and behavior, but to operate as effectively as possible. Our students, Facilities Department, faculty and staff are working hard together to improve our sustainability across campus operations.

Babson College is committed to measurable goals and transparency of its environmental impacts and efforts. In 2010, Babson became a charter participant in the Sustainability Tracking Assessment and Rating System (STARS), a transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and universities to gauge relative progress toward sustainability. Babson underwent a year-long data collection process for their submission to STARS and earned a Silver Rating in STARS 1.0 in early 2011. You can view Babson’s public STARS report here.
