Sac State gets top marks as most sustainable CSU campus

Sac State leads CSUs in sustainabilitySacramento State’s standing as a leader in sustainability has been reinforced by a Gold rating from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). The distinction puts the University in elite company among 650 colleges and universities on six continents.

Sac State’s score is the highest in the 23-campus California State University system, says Sac State sustainability manager Ryan Todd. AASHE gave Sac State excellent ratings for campus engagement, curriculum, and research – and the organization awarded full points for innovation, including the aquaponics and other work underway at STORC (the Sustainable Technology Optimization Research Center).

“At Sacramento State, we promote the highest standards of environmental stewardship,” President Robert S. Nelsen says. “Our mission supports leadership for sustainability as we continue to explore opportunities and new initiatives through innovative and collaborative means. The (AASHE) assessment provides a framework for Sacramento State’s ongoing efforts to strengthen our sustainability achievements.”
