2014-2015 Sustainability YearbookSustainability Report

Babson has been working to reduce our impact on the environment and the climate for decades, but now we’re taking it up a notch.

All across Babson, campus staff, students, and faculty are tackling issues of sustainability and resource efficiency and working to solve these integrated challenges. In 2008, Babson became a signatory of the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment, with a goal of carbon neutrality by 2050. In the summer of 2010, we opened the Babson Sustainability Office to support, enhance, and coordinate these efforts.

As a business school, we are aimed at educating tomorrow’s entrepreneurs and innovators. Babson is committed to integrating social and economic sustainability concepts into the business practices of this next generation of leaders and to create resilient, sustainable prosperity. We invite you to explore our actions, commitments, and initiatives, and to share your ideas for making Babson, and society, more sustainable.
