BoCo Green: Our Commitment to Reducing Waste

BoCo Green Website Header Image

BoCo Green is Boston Conservatory at Berklee’s initiative to reduce waste and embrace more eco-friendly and sustainable practices in our classrooms and on our stages.

Recognizing our institutional responsibility to help address climate change by incorporating environmentally sustainable practices in our operations, this ongoing initiative is supported by the Student Government Association (SGA) and departments across the Conservatory campus. Combined, these efforts are already having a positive environmental impact—see below for details, and learn more about how we’re working to reduce our carbon footprint.

The information above represents a conservative estimation of total savings, as it focuses just on the impact of paper usage and does not factor in the additional environmental impact from mailing, shipping, and recycling.
