GLRPPR Sector Resource: Joliet Junior College: A long-term SEDAC partnership

Title:
Joliet Junior College: A long-term SEDAC partnership

Abstract:
Joliet Junior College has made sustainability a priority. They work to make their campus as "environmentally healthy, economically sufficient, and socially inclusive" as possible. They were one of the first community colleges to establish a campus-wide sustainability committee back in 2008, and sustainability efforts have saved the college over $1 million. The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) awarded Joliet Junior College a strong bronze rating in 2015.

A long-term partnership with SEDAC has helped the college achieve significant energy savings. Since 2012, Joliet Junior College main campus has reduced annual electricity usage per square foot by 15%, and natural gas usage per square foot has dropped by 20%.
