Green Campus

In a milestone for environmentalism at TAU, the university was accredited in 2011 as a “green campus” by the Israeli government, in recognition of its efforts to create a more sustainable institution.  The accreditation is awarded to Israeli universities that implement programs in three key areas: academic degrees and courses in environmental studies (given by the Porter School of Environmental Studies); heightened resource efficiency through recycling and reduction of electricity and water use; and community-related projects that strengthen environmental awareness both on-campus and off.  Among the green innovations at TAU are more energy efficient lighting, the “Nature Campus” educational initiative, stands for the city of Tel Aviv’s new bicycle rental system, and a comprehensive plan for campus bicycle paths.
