Berkeley again makes the top 50 sustainable schools named by Princeton Review

UC Berkeley is once again honored by the Princeton Review as one of the most sustainable universities in the country.  We were recognized for our climate action planning as well as our work on energy efficiency and the number of engaged sustainability student groups.  Our work in water conservation, sustainable food, and active transportation were also recognized in this year's review.

Go Solar and Support Sustainability at Home & at Berkeley

How can you help do both? Go solar and Sungevity will give a minimum of $750 back to the Office of Sustainability to advance Berkeley’s carbon neutrality goals. Every kWh of electricity powered by the sun instead of fossil fuel makes a difference. More than 1 million homes in the U.S. have installed a solar system and yet 35 million more households could save money by going solar. Learn more and get your quote.
