Sustainability and the reduction of our ecological footprint are priorities for the Bloomberg School.

Global climate change threatens the health of the planet and endangers many species, including our own. Because of this—and the inability of planetary resources to sustain our current habits and lifestyles—it is imperative that we weave an ecological perspective into all of our activities including research, service, academics and operations.

We can consume cleaner energy, and less of it. We can purchase and use more ecologically friendly food and products. And we can reuse and recycle our resources.

Every researcher, manager, teacher, employee and student bears the responsibility of environmental stewardship. With concerted efforts, we can make a world of difference.

Message from the Dean

We can save the planet while we learn how to save lives. Dean Klag explains the Bloomberg School's color codes for recycling and composting.
