EXCITING NEWS ANNOUNCED AT SUSTAINABILITY BREAKFAST

 


On March 22, the Office of Sustainability hosted its third annual breakfast.  The Office’s Director Kelly Wellman, Assistant Manager Ben Kalscheur and Operations Coordinator Lara Hendrickson updated attendees – ranging from a wide variety of departments and colleges around campus – on some very exciting news.  As a result of improved collaboration across campus, Texas A&M University earned the gold rating from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.  The association’s rating program is known as STARS and Texas A&M has been participating in STARS since 2010.  Earning gold was such a milestone mainly because the Office of Sustainability had set a goal to achieve gold by 2018 and it was done an entire year early!  With having achieved gold status, this puts Texas A&M at a more competitive range of similarly sized universities and ahead of rival universities such as the University of Texas. 

 

SSC departments, especially Grounds Management, have worked with the Office of Sustainability on reporting their sustainability related efforts which extends far beyond recycling!  SSC is thankful to work with the Office of Sustainability and looks forward to help the rating increase even further.
