Exploring the State of Sustainability in Higher Education 2016

Presented by Heather Finnegan, Product Manager for Sustainability at Sightlines & Jennifer Andrews, Project Manager for Sustainability at the University of New Hampshire Sustainability Institute

Get an exclusive look at the 2016 sustainability trends and explore the key findings from this year’s State of Sustainability report through a comprehensive, “cradle-to-grave” examination of each stage of the building life cycle.

This educational, interactive webinar highlights the sustainability “wins” in higher education and outlines specific and actionable opportunities for continuous improvement.  Sustainability and facilities officers will gain insight on how:

  • New construction continues to outpace demolition, adding to campus environmental impact
  • Aging campuses face a future spike in capital needs without formal sustainability policies to govern capital reinvestment
  • Reductions in energy-related emissions may stagnate as fuel-switching options grow scarce
  • Institutions currently underestimate their carbon profile by as much as 37% and require new tools for more complete measurement
