Campus Sustainability Efforts Go Platinum

IN MARCH, CSU became the first school ever to achieve a platinum rating from the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System – or STARS – a national survey that measures sustainability at universities and colleges. CSU scored 85.29 points to earn a platinum rating, the highest available through STARS.

This is the third time CSU has topped the STARS rating system. The University achieved the top score when it submitted its first STARS reports in 2011 and then again in 2014. Both scores earned CSU gold ratings.

Operated by the Association for the Advancement for Sustainability in Higher Education, STARS is a self-reporting framework for colleges and universities to measure their sustainability performance. It is considered the most comprehensive and prestigious sustainability rating system for universities and colleges.

The STARS program evaluates universities for their sustainability efforts across campus. Reporting is divided into three categories: education and research; operations; and planning, administration and engagement.
