The STARS Cohort Program

Twelve Months of Exclusive Support and Training


The STARS Cohort program is designed to provide hands-on training and support to guide new and returning participants through the reporting process, with the ultimate aim of earning a STARS Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum rating.


The program is open to institutions that are not currently active participants, i.e., institutions that do not have a valid STARS rating or subscription.


In addition to the existing benefits of a STARS subscription, cohort participants will have access to a full year of dedicated support, including:

  • Monthly calls with other cohort members and AASHE staff.
  • Insights into data collection strategies and other aspects of reporting.
  • Access to a private, online community to brainstorm ideas, share resources and ask questions.


To participate in the cohort, an institution must purchase a discounted STARS subscription by Dec. 31, 2021. To support participation, AASHE is offering cohort members 20% off the standard cost of an annual subscription.

Completing STARS is a fairly time intensive process, particularly for institutions with limited experience in sustainability reporting. Participants should be prepared to spend a minimum of 10 hours a month working on their report.
