Stewardship & Sustainability

At Pingry, we take great pride in our curious, committed community.

For over 150 years, we have been offering students a well-rounded education that emphasizes not only rigorous academics but also honor and character, respect, and an appreciation for outdoor education and community and civic engagement. An important focal point of that respect and engagement is the stewardship of all our campus resources—natural, human, and financial. 

Student-Led Initiatives and Curricular Connections

Students experience the satisfaction of “going green” through classwork as well as extracurricular activities.

Green Campus

At Pingry, teaching environmental stewardship is but a part of the equation. Doing is equally important. The school is committed to a wide array of sustainability initiatives across both the Short Hills and Basking Ridge campuses.


Enterprise Risk Management

Stewardship and Sustainability isn't just about having a green thumb! At Pingry, it's a thoughtful and holistic approach to safeguarding our resources—physical, strategic, and economic—and strategic risk-taking, to ensure a bright future for the institution.

Pingry’s ongoing commitment to energy conservation and sustainability was recognized in 2011 when our buildings on the Basking Ridge campus were awarded the official ENERGY STAR certification, confirmation that we’re on the right track when it comes to ensuring top-functioning facilities while reducing energy consumption and costs.
