ACC is taking big steps to go green!
The Austin Community College District is committed to becoming a leader in sustainability. That means using less energy and fewer resources while minimizing waste.
ACC is rolling out a host of green initiatives designed to shrink its ecological footprint and increase environmental awareness.
The blueprint for implementing these college-wide reforms was created in February 2009 by the ACC Board of Trustees with the passage of Sustainable Practices Policy C-9.
That same year, ACC joined the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). By signing the pledge, ACC agreed to take actions to move the college toward climate neutrality. The climate action plan is a key step in that goal.
In 2010 ACC’s Recycling and Sustainability Committee initiated the conversation for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the committee made a recommendation that was shared through various college constituencies and eventually submitted to the president of ACC.
The college’s goal is to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 while continuing to grow to meet the demand for ACC programs and services.
