Accelerating Campus Climate Initiatives: Breaking Through Barriers
is a practical guide for anyone working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at a college or university: sustainability directors, CFOs, presidents, students, faculty, and staff. Venturing beyond an individual project or best practice, the book explores a wide range of challenges these committed people are facing, including the real and perceived barriers.
Offering real-world examples from campuses around the country, the book helps readers determine and drive projects based on a different way of thinking about buildings, utilities, perceptions, institutional structures, and all the other components comprising energy systems and campuses. The book covers five topics: climate action planning, buildings and utilities, renewable energy, transportation, and carbon offsets. Buy the book now.
