The Climate Justice & Sustainability Hub at Northeastern University

The Climate Justice and Sustainability Hub, formally the Office of Sustainability, was launched in April 2021 to reflect Northeastern’s intention to engage, implement, and put research into action on climate justice, sustainability, and resilience across our global network.

The Hub will work to elevate Northeastern’s ability to leverage the talent from our students, faculty, and staff, and global partnerships to expand our leadership role and implement just solutions to address the climate crisis.
