Prepared by the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) and the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy (NRTEE)
The Green Guide provides an overview of the steps involved in creating an environmentally sustainable college. It focuses on the principles, strategies and goals which underlie such an endeavour. This volume draws on together reports from ACCC member institutions which have undertaken various initiatives to green their campuses.
Rather than presenting promotional statements, The Green Guide gathers case studies of less than perfect human beings coming to grips with the environmental challenges posed by their institutions and training mandates. Much can be learned from their mistakes as well as the success stories.
The Green Guide is useful, not only to academic organizations but to other private sector organizations, as a reference tool for implementing sustainable development. The book is intended to serve as a model and a guide for future action.
