Green Campus

It is critical to not just shift our campus culture toward 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. In 2015, Babson earned a Gold Rating. View Babson’s public STARS report.

Babson has continually reduced trash output from 1,681 tons in 2005 to 997 tons in 2014, a reduction of over 40%. Another significant achievement has been the recycling of 75% of on-campus construction debris.
