Why the Green Wave Program?
FAU is committed to building more energy and water efficient buildings with materials that come from recycled products and contain low or no toxic particles. This program has been implemented to compliment these "green" buildings and to help the older buildings increase their efficiency reducing FAU's carbon footprint. By reaching all departments across campus even small changes become significant when multiplied by the more than 2,600 employees that work across the 7 FAU campuses.
What is the Green Wave Program?
- Common sense approach to sustainable practices
- Cost savings within the department and ultimately University wide
- A guide to what practices are currently being accomplished
- A guide to what practices can be accomplished - goal setting
- Self-reporting rubric to measure and improve upon
- Tool to share sustainable initiatives that work with other units
- A place to seek help to make sustainable initiatives successful
Who is the Green Wave Program?
It is every single person who that works, attends or visits an FAU campus. If we become our own watchdogs for these practices and take responsibility for respecting our environment we can help change a culture of waste and abuse of our valuable resources.
