Sustainable CUNY Conserves is a University wide effort to reduce energy consumption across CUNY’s 29 million square feet in over 300 buildings, spend less money on utilities, and use the savings to support other campus initiatives. Sustainable CUNY Conserves provides a platform for sharing best practices, training, data and analytics, IT support, and a one million dollar revolving Sustainable Investment Fund (SIF) in addition to providing assistance on implementing the Campus Sustainability Plan actions.  This program has been given further impetus by the Governor’s Executive Order 88, NYBuild Smart, which mandates CUNY to achieve a 22% reduction in energy use by 2020.
