Commitment to Sustainability
As a leading employer and well respected public agency, SOCCCD understands it has a deep responsibility to its local communities and society at-large to operate its facilities in ways that are efficient, sustainable and cost-effective—with the least possible impact on the environment. Reducing energy consumption is good for the environment and any generated cost savings can be utilized to better serve students and all communities, locally, and globally. Consistent with these perspectives, the students, faculty, staff, administrators and Board of Trustees of the College have consistently pursued and implemented a wide range of sustainability efforts over many years, including energy efficiency improvement, recycling, LEED certification, green transportation and procurement practices, water conservation and more.
