While at Yale, it is easy to be involved in sustainability activities: in the dining halls, libraries, or through on campus organizations and athletics. It is important to maintain this perspective after graduation, and many alumni have integrated sustainability into their lives and work.
In an effort to increase awareness of sustainability in Yale Alumni activities, AYA offices have achieved Green Workplace Certification in 2012. Yale College Reunions are also committed to Green Event Certification.
On a personal level, alumni can choose to mitigate the ecological impact of their travel back to Yale by contributing to the Yale Community Carbon Fund. This program allows you to offset the emissions from your travel, and improve the lives of low-income families in New Haven through energy efficiency improvements.
Get involved with Yale Blue Green, a special interest group of the AYA.
