The latest updates on sustainability at Stanford

Turn Down for Break and Win!
Before you leave for the holidays, pledge to power down your work space for a chance to win $50. Small conservation actions add up to big savings across campus- 2014 Winter Closure savings were equivalent to taking 11 Knight Management Centers off the grid for a year! Learn More
Partnerships Support Sustainability in Stanford Athletics
Continued collaboration between Sustainable Stanford and Stanford Athletics is resulting in greener athletics facilities, operations, events, and participant engagement every year. Discover some of the significant milestones that have established Stanford Athletics as a crucial partner in conservation. Learn More
Faculty Senate Tours New Central Energy Facility 
The Faculty Senate participated in a guided tour of the new Central Energy Facility (CEF) during its final meeting of the year. Senate members learned how the CEF, a key component of the Stanford Energy Systems Innovations project, is contributing to Stanford's anticipated 68% reduction in emissions and 15% reduction in campus water use. Learn More
Thanksgiving Closure Results in Significant Energy Savings
With your support, Stanford saved over $10,0000 in energy costs during the Thanksgiving Holiday by powering down 29 buildings on campus. Emission reductions from the Arrillaga Alumni Center alone were equivalent to taking one car off the road for a year! Learn More
Stanford Students Participate in COP21
29 undergraduates and co-terms traveled to Paris earlier this month to attend COP21. Online photos, videos, podcasts, and blog entries offer an insightful student perspective of the international convergence. Learn More
Sustainability Champions of the Month
Carolyn Helmke and Suman Chaube - LBRE
Inspired to save energy by the Winter Closure campaign, Carolyn and Suman are leading the charge on removing an underused, secondary refrigerator from their break room. Their hard work will save Stanford over $140 in energy costs each year. Way to go!
