Potential Impact of Sustainable Universities – Back to School Part 2

Michael Crow, President of Arizona State University relates a conversation in the video above. He was asked the following question, and gives his response:

Who cares weather or not the colleges and universities reduce their carbon footprints? You don’t have a big carbon footprint to begin with. You only have 2% – 3% of the carbon footprint of the country. I said “Yeah, that’s true, but we have 100% of the student footprint.”

The moral of the story? Sustainable universities create sustainable futures.
