Our accomplishments through the Green Fund 

  • Working every year to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, we aim to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.  
    We are 71% of the way there!
  • Last semester, we launched an e-bike library that rents e-bikes to students and employees for FREE. 
  • We ramped up our compost efforts and now compost 100% of dining hall waste. 
  • Since our baseline year, we have slashed emissions from purchased electricity by 80% through efficient equipment updates on campus, re-insulating buildings, passive solar designs, photovoltaic systems installations, and purchased Renewable Energy Credits. 
  • Our annual Sustainability Initiative Grant funded an Indigenous foods workshop and a program that provided 200 free student veggie bags.
