Columbia University is an important center of research and a distinguished learning environment for about 37,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The University recognizes the importance of its location in New York City and seeks to link its research and teaching to the vast resources of a great metropolis. It attracts a diverse and international faculty, staff, and student body to support research and teaching on global issues, and to create academic relationships with many countries and regions.

Columbia commits to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or sooner. At Columbia, we recognize that to be truly sustainable is to take a multi-faceted and multi-tiered approach. We are looking to tackle climate and sustainability issues through world-renowned research occurring right here on our campus, engaging staff leadership and individual participation. Ranging from energy conservation efforts to award-winning reuse programs and recycling efforts, we’re dedicated to creating a more sustainable planet for all.
