Sustainability at COM

College of Marin tackles climate change through bold and decisive leadership-from the foundation up. Our facilities have been upgraded and designed with sustainability in mind beginning with the Measure C modernization bond in 2004 through to Measure B with anticipated completion in 2024. COM has made bold strides in the areas of green building, clean energy, student engagement, education, operations, and now—zero waste.
