Over the past three years, St. John’s University has cut its campus carbon dioxide emissions by 13,498 metric tons over the past three years, equivalent to the amount of gas released by 2,747 vehicles during the same time period. This achievement stems from the many innovative energy conservation and recycling initiatives the University has introduced since 2009 as a result of St. John’s commitment to become a higher education NYC Challenge Partner and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 30 percent by 2017.
