The mission of BOS is to enhance the sustainability of the College in its operations, academics, and outreach, while making Bard carbon neutral by 2035.
We seek to enhance our environmental, social, and economic capital while operating within the limits of the ecosystem. Our primary work areas involve efficient transportation, flow of goods, and energy use. We foster dialogue among community members, assess new technology and industry best practices, coordinate projects, develop policy, and market programs. We believe all community members have a part in furthering sustainability.
