Greener campuses and equitable communities 

Advancing climate solutions across our global campuses

We’re working to build greener campuses across Northeastern’s global system to promote climate justice and meet our sustainability goals.

If we work together, we can advance climate solutions and create a sustainable future. The Climate Justice and Sustainability Hub connects with sustainability initiatives across Northeastern’s global system and communities.
