Week 1: Turn it off & pull the plug
This week we are asking you to switch off lights when leaving last from any room on campus and unplug chargers when not in use.

Cornell University is committed to carbon neutrality by 2035. We all have a role to play in reducing our energy use and changing behaviors. Together, staff, faculty, and students can co-create an enduring culture of sustainability on campus - for our people and our planet.
