(CE) Greener Campus, What Could Go Wrong

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The number of green initiatives taking place at the nation's colleges and universities is on the rise. In fact, the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment already has more than 670 signatories pledging to help the environment. From power generation through wind turbines and photovoltaic panels, to low VOC paint and Green Guard-certified carpeting and student-led recycling initiatives, increased investment also comes with increased risk. Hear about universities journey in becoming greener, including initiatives considered and what was ultimately implemented. Increase your understanding of risks associated with specific green initiatives, such as power generation and building materials. Take home a practical risk assessment questionnaire to help you master these risks for your school’s success. Institutions of all sizes that have or are considering investment in a greener campus can benefit from this session.
Learning Objectives:
 Gain insights into green campus trends and a
university’s journey in becoming greener
 Increase awareness of potential risks associated with
solar, wind, geothermal, and other green initiatives
 Take home a practical risk assessment tool to
understand risk during planning, installation, and
maintenance of green initiatives on campus.
