The Office of Campus Sustainability operates within Campus Operations to fulfill three overarching goals established through BGSU's "Climate Action Plan" to achieve institutional carbon-neutrality by the year 2040:
Save Some Energy with Double Hung Windows!
Next time your house is getting hot, take a look at your windows and wind direction! Open the lower half of windows facing oncoming wind and the top half of windows on the opposite side of the house. Heat rises and cold air sinks, creating great air flow!
BGSU's recycling program
BGSU offers single-stream recycling throughout all of campus. This means all recyclables go into the recycling bin and non-recyclables go into the landfill bin. Recyclables include paper, plastics #1-7, cardboard, metal, and glass! Follow the guidelines provided on the signage to help ensure items are placed into the correct bin.
BGSU Climate Action Plan
BGSU has completed the Climate Action Plan, which drives sustainability at the University. The CAP has outlined the current status of sustainability as well as areas for planned improvement. The University has accepted the goal of being Carbon Neutral by the year 2040!
