Facilities & Operations Biennial Progress Report, September 14, 2006, pages 1-20. Developed by Facility Services, Facilities Planning & Capital Projects and in cooperation with the Sustainability Advisory Committee.
This report is one of many attempts to quantify and track Cal Poly’s movement toward a “greener” campus. Efforts are underway to reduce reliance on automobile commuting to campus, to promote energy and water conservation, to recycle solid waste, and to incorporate “green” products and practices in new buildings and in campus operations. This report looks at measures of sustainability along several parameters. The results not only highlight various successes, but also suggest areas in which additional efforts are needed. We intend to update this report biennially.
