Yale University
New Haven, Connecticut

In 2005, Yale committed to reducing its carbon dioxide emissions 43% by 2020. The campus now has 14 LEED buildings, including the Platinum-certified School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. Above, students sort through items at the university's annual "spring salvage" event, which reclaims stuff that would otherwise get thrown out at the end of the academic year.
