Sustainability at Berkeley College

Signatory of American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment

  • Berkeley College Continues Steps Toward Becoming Carbon Neutral 
  • Berkeley College Releases NYC Climate Action Plan 
  • The Berkeley College libraries have expanded their collections with new resources on environmental sustainability. Click to see the list.
  • Automatic paper towel dispensers and foam soap dispensers can now be found in all restrooms, and are helping to reduce resources and eliminate waste. Berkeley College is using paper towels made from recycled paper. All faucets that have been replaced are either automatic faucets or run only for a short time.
  • Berkeley has been successfully using Pharos Systems print management and copy control software at each campus to help reduce paper waste. Since January 2005, we have cut paper use in the classrooms by over 60% and have saved more than one million pages per year.
  • Videoconference facilities are available at the Woodland Park, Woodbridge, NYC Midtown, Paramus, Woodbridge, and Newark locations. The Project GreenPath committee meets via videoconference to avoid as much as possible creating fossil fuel emissions in transit.
  • Air conditioning thermostats are reset in the evenings and on weekends.
  • Office paper that is shredded by an outside vendor is then recycled.
  • The Newark location installed energy saving water chillers, heaters, boilers, and other HVAC equipment, as well as energy efficient lighting for classrooms and offices, and a gas generator. Many of these features were approved through the PSEG Energy SmartStart Program.
  • Green flooring was installed in the NYC Midtown location elevator.
  • The White Plains location installed motion sensors for lighting.
