Cedar Valley College wants to do its part to fight global warming and raise environmental awareness around campus. In this effort, we are encouraging sustainable practices not only in the day-to-day operations of the college, but additionally in the classroom.
The Green Cedar Valley College Program addresses the issues of campus emissions, informative events, and green practices around the campus.
Sustainability can be defined as:
"development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." - The Brundtland Report
Sustainability contains three guiding principles:
Equity - Social and cultural effects from change
Economic - Longevity of business practices
Ecological - How the world around us will be affected in the future
Cedar Valley Green is an initiative that addresses these principles.
||Cedar Valley College is an active member of the Presidents Climate Commitment. Through this program, we have committed to achieving emission neutrality and implementing sustainability concepts into our day-to-day operations.
