College Study: Green Practices Need Improvement

The Sustainable Endowments Institute released its College Sustainability Report Card, which grades 100 leading colleges campus greening practices and endowment policies (via Sustainablog).

The report’s grade of “A-“, the highest cumulative sustainability grade, was received by Harvard University, Stanford University, Dartmouth College, and Williams College. (See all report cards here.) When assessing campus operations only, 26 schools received an average grade of “A-” or better.

Seventy-five percent of the schools received a “C” or worse.

The College Sustainability Report Card takes into account 26 indicators, from green building initiatives to endowment investment policies, and uses an A to F letter grading system to evaluate performance. The study indicates that some leading schools are taking proactive steps on both campus and endowment sustainability initiatives. Other schools are shown to have a less consistent commitment.

When looking at final grades,  Four schools earned level “A” grades, 22 earned level “B” grades, 54 earned level “C” grades, and 20 earned level “D” grades.
