IU Athletics joins WPP as an Advanced Partner

Kristine Fowler, Associate Athletic Director for Compliance and Caryn Hojnicki, Sustainability Coordinator  accept the WPP certificate on March 18

Thank you to IU Athletics, which joined the Workplace Partner Program in early March!

IU Athletics is dedicated to promoting sustainability on and off campus. Their Greening Cream and Crimson initiative strives to improve the sustainable systems within the Athletic Department and create a long-term strategic sustainability plan that emphasizes their vision of being the Greenest Athletics Department within the Big Ten.  During the 2015-2016 season, they piloted a composting program and set up Zero Waste Stations throughout the concourse in Memorial Stadium with Zero Waste Educators there to assist fans in disposing of their waste properly. The pilot was a success and the program will be continued in the 2016-2017 season!

We are happy to have such a dedicated community partner on board!

Monroe County businesses and non-profits can now easily become active participants in the Monroe County Energy Challenge by joining our Workplace Partners Program.

The Workplace Partners Program (WPP) is based on the idea that workplaces can be a catalyst for positive change in our community. Commercial and institutional meters aren’t included in the competition, so the focus of the WPP is on encouraging a shift in employee behaviors at home. Sign on to become an MCEC Workplace Partner, and we will provide you with materials and information you need help your employees and customers save energy in their homes, while also making them more mindful of their energy use at your business!  Click here to see our options for involvement.
