LC pledges $250,000 for The Challenge
In its continued effort towards achieving a “greener” campus, Lethbridge College has pledged $250,000 toward the Billion Dollar Green Challenge (The Challenge).
The Challenge encourages post-secondary institutions to join together and invest a combined total of $1 billion in self-managed revolving funds that are dedicated to improving energy efficiency on campus. The college will be a charter member of this global effort in support of sustainability.
“Lethbridge College is the only institute in Alberta to make this commitment and one of only three in Canada,” says Peter Leclaire, interim president and CEO of Lethbridge College. “We’re excited to be able to support projects that work towards saving energy, reducing carbon emissions and lowering energy expenses while creating a green revolving fund for future sustainability upgrades along the way.”
The Challenge was launched in October 2011 with 32 Founding Circle institutions, which included Dartmouth, Harvard and Stanford. Lethbridge College will join what has grown to 38 institutions with $83 million overall committed.
