Hopkinsville Community College is among many other colleges and universities throughout the country that are making a substantial investment in the sustainability of their campuses according to new information released by the National Wildlife Federation.
These innovative efforts made by various college and universities across the nation can now be reviewed online at the National Wildlife Federation’s campus sustainability case study database.
Officials say over 100 new case studies highlight efforts to dramatically reduce pollution, waste and costs through recycling and energy efficient initiatives.
In 2012, HCC officials submitted a case study incorporating data on energy production and savings through their new solar array into the classroom.
HCC Sustainability Co-Chair, Kristi Howell says this online resource helps colleges and universities learn how other campuses tackle their energy and water consumption challenges.
The online database currently retains about 800 case studies from campuses across the nation over the course of 20 years.
