List is based on the 68 teams that qualified for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament and Princeton Review’s 2011 list of the 311 greenest colleges. Learn more about the list, and how the schools were chosen, by clicking here.

The Bearcats have made it to the Sweet 16, and if their basketball is as good as their green efforts, they could make a surprising run in the tournament. As a member of The American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment, Cincy is dedicated to working toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving research into the effects of climate change and encouraging students to get involved by joining the Student Sustainability Coalition. Sustainable programs at the school include a bike-sharing program and a car-sharing partnership with Zipcar.
