A brief description of the institution’s sustainability partnerships with the local community:

The mission of FortZED is to transform the downtown area and the main campus of Colorado State University into a net Zero Energy District through conservation, efficiency, renewable sources and smart technologies. FortZED is made up of a set of active projects and initiatives, created by public-private partnerships.

The collaboration was created by the UniverCity Connections Sustainable Energy Task Force as a vision to create a net-zero energy district in the Fort Collins’ UniverCity area. UniverCity Connections is an initiative of the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado, focused on convening community and catalyzing opportunities for positive change with a focus on three of Fort Collins’ community assets: Colorado State University, Downtown, and the Poudre River.
