SUNY Old Westbury in 2023 was named a NYSERDA Clean Green Campus ACHIEVER. 

NYSERDA’s Clean Green Campuses initiative is a membership network of two- and four-year, public and private colleges and universities in New York State exploring ways to lower carbon emissions and contribute to a just energy transition on their campuses and surrounding communities. Clean Green Campuses connects its member institutions to exclusive funding opportunities and advisory services, as well as peer-to-peer knowledge sharing opportunities. 

As an ACHIEVER campus, SUNY Old Westbury was recognized for its formal commitment to carbon reduction and for having completed some clean energy projects. These institutions also have dedicated staff to focus on clean energy investments and achieving institutional carbon reduction goals.
