Green Practices-Steinbrenner Institute - Carnegie Mellon University

Green Practices

In 1990 Carnegie Mellon adopted a formal recycling policy and appointed campus Recycling Liaisons to implement the policy. The liaisons adopted the "Reduce, Reuse, Recycling" theme and promoted campus wide efforts to reduce waste.

In 1998, the Green Practices Committee was established to develop a more comprehensive waste reduction and energy conservation program. The committee, which is comprised of staff, faculty and students, establish priorities, goals, and mechanisms for implementing environmental practices.
