Colleges and universities are leading efforts towards carbon neutrality. Yet, the activities of some outpace many. Not only are campuses focused on carbon neutrality, there are other more human-focused metrics shaping discussion, especially as it relates to buildings and place.
Sustainability goes beyond our natural environment. It includes the health, safety, and well-being of students and faculty as well. To help shape discussion and future action, we created a free assessment for anyone to use as a resource for shaping discussion with college and university leaders.
The questions in this survey were inspired by LEED for existing buildings operations & maintenance and Fitwel, two green rating systems that outline how existing buildings can achieve sustainability and are tailored specifically to college campuses. We encourage college and university students, parents, alums, employees and administrators to take this free assessment. A customized report will be sent to anyone that completes the survey, including suggestions on how to improve overall scores and consider the feedback to take action. Get started today!
