Sustainability and Recycling: Our Mission
The mission of the C&G Committee is threefold:
- Promote more energy efficiency throughout the college system by developing sustainable green projects.
- Expose our students to potential green jobs
- Work with existing groups and create new partnerships to minimize negative impacts on the environment.
Houston Community College (HCC) seeks to model ways to eliminate carbon emissions and to educate students and graduates in methods to achieve climate neutrality. HCC is a signatory of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC).
Started in the summer of 2009, the Clean and Green (C&G) Committee serves as an advisory group to the Chancellor. Along with relevant stakeholders, the C&G Committee develops recommendations that support HCC’s commitment as an ACUPCC signatory and promotes the mission of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE): “to empower higher education to lead the sustainability transformation.” In this effort, it has submitted a climate action plan to AASHE that provides a blueprint for our ongoing sustainability efforts and will implement a system-wide recycling program.
