SFSU recognized for being green 

San Francisco State University is one of the nation’s most environmentally responsible universities, according to The Princeton Review.

The school made a list of 286 colleges and universities that are dedicated to “sustainability in infrastructure, activities and initiatives.”

SFSU’s “aggressive recycling programs” helped earn it the honor, the school said in a statement.

Also, the school’s “wide selection of degree offerings related to sustainability, research opportunities available at the Romberg Tiburon Center and surrounding wetlands, as well as campus-wide composting activities and efforts to encourage biking” are other reasons, it said.

Additionally, SFSU said it has reduced energy and water usage, increased the waste it diverts away from landfills, created more alternative transportation options, began offering sustainable dining choices, implemented green cleaning, purchased green products and plants native species.

“A recent greenhouse gas survey found the university has reduced greenhouse gas emissions compared to 1990 rates,” it said.
