Greener Going Forward

Sustainability Plan 2020-2024


The goal of this plan is to identify the policies, resources, and programs needed to place The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) as a genuine leader in higher education’s efforts to promote environmental sustainability.  To date, many inspired groups on campus have promoted various environmental initiatives.  Indeed, a commitment to strategic investment and shared governance have allowed TCNJ to limit and at times reduce its greenhouse gas footprint over the last decade.  Moving forward, the College needs to coordinate these efforts as well as assess what is missing.  The Sustainability Plan identifies, prioritizes, and coordinates environmental initiatives so that TCNJ minimizes its carbon footprint, better stewards its resources, and provides environmental leadership on and beyond campus.
