In 2011, ESF earned a silver rating through STARS (Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System).
The Office of Energy and Sustainability at ESF seeks to perpetuate that mission through national leadership and on-campus initiatives. Colleges nationwide have joined together in addressing the challenges of a changing climate, diminishing oil reserves, vanishing habitat, and declining regional economies. As a signer of the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), and member of the Association for the Advncement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), ESF is a core participant in large-scale cooperative efforts. The sustainability office at ESF has facilitated on-campus efforts through projects such as solar panels, a wind turbine and a biomass combined heat and power plant in the new Gateway Building.
