Information on Indoor Air Quality Management came from Jennifer Ambrose, Environmental Health & Safety Officer.

Calvin does not currently implement a Green Cleaning strategy or policy.

Energy Management and Water Management programs are under CERF (Calvin Energy Recovery Fund) and the spaces highlighted by these programs are monitored and/or analyzed for energy / water savings long-term. See more at : https://calvin.edu/support/energy/

Water management came partly from 370 dorm spaces on campus, in which low-flow shower heads are used to manage water more sustainably.

Energy management came from areas on campus listed above.

Note from 4.26.19:
As of now, CERF cannot count for energy and water benchmarking, because we do not have evidence and language that can support that CERF counts as of now. Working on 4.26.19 to provide that evidence and language, because we believe it may exist.
