Sustainable Winter Break

Sustainable Winter Break

Your Help Requested for a Sustainable Winter Break!

As the winter break approaches and final exams start to wind down, the team at Northeastern’s Planning, Real Estate, and Facilities (PREF) ask that you take the time to leave your dormitory or workspace in the most energy-efficient and sustainable state while you are home enjoying time with family and friends.   

Your actions will contribute to Northeastern’s energy reduction goals as we continue to invest in energy and carbon reduction projects across our campuses. For example, did you know that our Boston campus recently underwent a whole campus LED lighting retrofit? Or that EXP is seeking LEED Platinum certification?  



Northeastern uses a multi-stream recycling system to reduce contamination, and ensure a high quality recycling stream.
