Stevenson University Green Initiatives
The new Stevenson University School of Business and Leadership
demonstrates the commitment the University has made to green
buildings and sustainability. Eco-friendly features include
energy-efficient light fixtures and occupancy sensors, low-flow
plumbing, a web-based control system to allow for remote
setbacks during unoccupied periods, and low-E glass to reduce
heating and cooling loads. The new structure did not require
additional parking areas or construction of impervious surfaces
- reducing the environmental footprint.
Greening Our Space
What do cups, food waste, and soap have in common? At Stevenson
University, these three products are part of a larger effort
toward greening the campus with recycling, purchasing of
eco-friendly products, and rethinking how things work. Here's a
list of what's new:
Fill Up- Recyclable corn cups and refillable mugs in the
Mustang Corral eatery; Napkins made of recycled materials; Green
mountain coffee, a fair trade coffee, is now available.
Clean Up- Paper towel dispensers are now battery-powered
"Enmotion" dispensers, saving paper and dollars; Handsoap in the
Gojo dispensers is a green certified soap cleaning chemicals are
being switched to green certified products.
Power Up- Electronic waste, such as computers and
monitors, is recycled annually. Refrigerants are
captured/contained (when appropriate) and sent to a company for
cleaning and reuse.
