For the fourth-straight year, Harvard is at the top of the College Sustainability Report Card, an annual report that grades the green credentials of 300 colleges and universities. As one of 26 institutions to receive the top A- grade in the 2010 College Sustainability Report Card, Harvard was also named an Overall College Sustainability Leader.
Started in 2007, the report serves as an independent evaluation of campus and sustainability activities at colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. The report evaluates institutions based on a number of categories including administrative engagement, commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and student involvement in sustainability initiatives, among others.
