Climate change USA Edit

It is one of six universities to become the first academic institutions to come on board the United Nations Environment Programme's Climate Neutral Network (CN Net)

The Evergreen State College has established a national reputation for leadership in developing innovative interdisciplinary academic programs. Evergreen has been a leader in environmental education from the beginning, and in recent years, the College has advanced its commitment to sustainability. Evergreen is engaging the local, regional and global community to demonstrate and enact clear policies to address the world-changing challenges of climate change. The College has set a goal of reaching carbon neutrality by 2020 and currently purchases 16 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) from renewable energy sources, representing 100 percent of the school's annual electricity usage. The US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that Evergreen State College's purchase of more than 16 million kilowatt-hours of green power is the equivalent amount of electricity needed to power more than 1,600 average American homes each year or has the equivalent impact of reducing the CO2 emissions of more than 2,100 passenger cars annually. Furthermore, Evergreen's most recent energy savings and conservation plan will reduce carbon output by 500 tonnes and save $73,000 per year. [1]
