The performance of the CSUSB campuses toward creating and maintaining a more sustainable environment is measured by goals and standards set forth in legislative and administrative directives to improve water and energy efficiencies, to reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, to develop energy independence, to reduce solid waste, and to support the integration of sustainable principles into academic programs and business operations.

To date, CSUSB has met and exceeded established goals and continues to work toward reducing environmental impacts and improving economies through campus policy, projects and best practices.
