Star Tribune Notes Carleton’s Selection in the Climate Leadership Awards
The Feb. 12 edition of the Star Tribune featured Carleton’s selection as a finalist in the Second Nature 2013 Climate Leadership Awards. The award is an annual competition among U.S. colleges and universities that are part of the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment. As part of its ACUPCC agreement and its own climate action plan, the schools have set a goal of producing net zero carbon by 2050. Carleton has incorporated sustainability as a basic part of it strategic plan that was released last fall after an 18-month planning process.
The article noted several of Carleton’s sustainability strengths. The school’s second wind turbine, installation of the first electric vehicle charging station in Rice County, and implementation of an improved community waste program set the institution apart as a sustainability leader. Carleton was also selected as a finalist in 2012.
