On Earth Day 2015, Belmont University launched "Conservation Covenant," a campus-wide sustainability campaign aimed at educating faculty, staff and students on the importance of taking care of that which takes such good care of us. We believe taking care of God's creation is more than a cause -- it's a charge. It's our Covenant.

A campus-wide convocation was held to announce the campaign and show a video detailing Belmont's sustainability efforts.

The name of the campaign (2nd campaign):
"Flip It and Win It"

A brief description of the campaign (2nd campaign):

Residence halls entered into a competition to see which hall could consume the lowest amount of energy. All energy usage was measured by total Kilowatt Hour consumption per building as provided by data from Plant Operations.

A goal was set for each complex to reduce its energy consumption during the two time periods by a total of 20%.

During the campaign, interested parties could view the data via the “Belmont Goes Green” web site. Individuals could also monitor the energy consumption for each individual residential facility.

The program has become an annual event known as the “Sustain-a-Bowl.”

An additional campaign (3) was held to get recycling stations throughout campus


A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign (2nd campaign):

This year’s winner reduced their energy usage by nearly 23% from the year before and a 9% decrease across campus.
