Autumn Workshops to Track and Lower your Campus GHG Emissions!

07 Sep 2011 12:02 PM | Leslie Raucher (Administrator)

 

 

On January 1, 2010, NJHEPS and Kean University began work on a partnership project, working together to help institutions in EPA Region 2 to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. NJHEPS and Kean were awarded a 3-year grant designed to update sustainability tools such as the Green Design Guidelines and a "How-To" manual that serves as a yardstick for sustainability management procedures.  In addition, there are 18 training workshops supported by this grant. This fall, 7 such workshops will be held at college and university campuses under EPA Region 2 jurisdiction in New Jersey and New York.

 

Topics covered throughout workshops this fall will include: Green Design Building Guidelines, state & federal incentive programs, Greenhouse Gas Reporting Initiative (GRI), Hospitality Green's Resource Tracking Tool, Clean Air-Cool Planet and other GHG Calculators, and highlights of what campuses throughout the region are doing to track and lower their GHG emissions. We hope to see you at some of these workshops. There is no registration fee and lunch will be provided to those that pre-register.

 

Here is a list of our autumn line-up of workshops and the main topic of each session. In addition, there is a website for each workshop that provides registration information.
