Strategies in Sustainability

A strategy under the Institutional Goal of Innovation and Competitiveness encourages an open and engaging environment that empowers faculty and staff to be creative and innovative. Aligned with Berkeley Cares, the following facilities improvements were made on Berkeley College campuses in late 2018 and 2019.

Sustainability Infographic- Improvements made to the Berkeley College Campuses- 25+ HVAC converted to energy efficient units, 10,000+ bulbs converted to LEP, 40 energy efficient windows installed in NYC, 50,000+ water bottles saved by campus hydration stations.

Hydration Stations at Berkeley College

Water bottle filling stations are available across Berkeley College campuses. These stations provide chilled filtered water to encourage the use of reusable bottles. The units are fitted with a counter to track how many single-use plastic water bottles have been saved since installation. To date, Berkeley College locations have saved more than 830,000 bottles.
