The Green Path has multiple purposes. It is intended not only to fulfill the goals of the college's strategic plan, but also to meet requirements of several New York State Executive Orders and to develop a strategy to work towards the energy and academic goals of “Energy Smart New York”  in SUNY’s strategic plan (the Power of SUNY).

Outside of SUNY, it begins to fulfill the college’s commitment to the American College and Universities President’s Climate Commitment. By signing this document, the president joined 676 other colleges in agreeing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to increase sustainability education. The college has made similar commitments through its membership in the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). But most importantly, the plan is the college’s first effort to create an organized, deliberate and thorough effort to advance environmental sustainability.
