“Bryn Mawr College affirms the importance of prioritizing sustainability efforts, reducing our carbon footprint, and above all, educating generations of students so they may make positive change in an interdependent world.” — Bryn Mawr College Climate Action Plan
As interest in the environment and preserving our beautiful planet continues to grow, Bryn Mawr College has committed to environmental sustainability. We approach sustainability with the innovative thinking Bryn Mawr is known for. We recognize that sustainability is an issue of social justice, and as such is vital to our goals as a socially responsible institution.
As part of our ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability, in 2014 we completed an update of the College's Greenhouse Gas Inventory. The report acknowledges the College's purchased REC's for 50% of its electricity purchased in fiscal year 2014. In FY 2015, the College received credit for purchased REC's for 100% of its electricity purchases. This resulted in a further reduction of our carbon footprint (Carbon Footprint Progress).
