On Monday, Oct. 4, the Office of Sustainability at Yale revealed a three-year "sustainability strategic plan," an initiative designed to help Yale realize its "vision of being a sustainability leader."
The 25-page plan not only details the increased restrictions on everyday consumption and disposal practices, but also addresses the current sustainability challenges of the institution and presents potential resolutions. Goals outlined in the sustainability plan, similar to those in Princeton's own, include tapping more energy from renewable sources, using green cleaning products in all builings and reviewing methods of food transportation. Like Princeton, Yale hopes to greatly reduce greenhouse-gas emissions in the next decade--to 43 percent below 2005 levels by 2020.
