For a greening Cornell, three is a gold STARS charm
Cornell University has recently earned its third consecutive gold STARS rating from Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education. Cornell has pushed continually towards efforts to save energy, increase sustainability research and education. “Cornell’s dining procurement choices have significant impacts on our regional economy and environment, as well global implications. Cornell gets its milk products and apples from the university’s own farming operations. In fact, we use fair trade coffee, and that has huge implications for growers in coffee regions around the world,” says Dan Roth, director for campus sustainability.
