Honeywell to Help College Halve Carbon Footprint
Honeywellâ€™s campus-wide energy retrofit project for Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, aims to cut about 2,300 metric tons of annual greenhouse gas emissions from the 20-building campus.
Combined with a transition to gas-fired heating in 2010, the college expects to cut its carbon footprint in half.
This will help the school meet the sustainability requirements of the American College and University Presidentsâ€™ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), which Coe College and more than 680 other US institutions have joined to help curb climate change.
Honeywell also expects the project to decrease the collegeâ€™s electricity use by 25 percent and natural gas consumption by about 50 percent, and deliver about $220,000 in guaranteed energy and operational savings each year.
Last month Coe College joined the EPAâ€™s Food Recovery Challenge (FRC), a national initiative aimed at encouraging businesses, organizations and institutions to prevent food waste.
