Green Leaves is a Slippery Rock University initiative to promote sustainability. People who take on the responsibility of monitoring their department are called Green Leaders. These individuals can earn points for their departments in a variety of ways. All things in the program are designed to reduce the carbon footprint of departments.
The campus-wide sustainability audit records greenhouse gas inventory each year. In order to achieve our goals as a whole, we must unite the individuals that impact that data every day to make visible progress. Through the Climate Action Plan, the university is projected to becoming carbon neutral by 2037. Therefore, the ability to reach the school’s population and encourage active, voluntary practices is vital to the school’s success.
Regardless of your major, career prospects, or business interests, sustainability plays an essential role in achieving success. Sustainability practices reduce waste and promotes good business practices.
