Engineering College launches ‘Think Big, Live Green’ campaign
Cut out, pay back, smack down, tune in and turn off: It’s time for “Think Big, Live Green,” a major energy and waste reduction campaign being launched today (Sept. 4) by the College of Engineering and the Energy and Sustainability department in Cornell’s Facilities Services.
Throughout the fall and spring semesters, students, faculty and staff will participate in the drive, striving to reduce the college’s environmental footprint. In subsequent years, the Think Big, Live Green campaign will be implemented in all Cornell colleges and units.
The College of Engineering uses significant campus energy resources, and its leadership supports the university’s movement toward climate neutrality. “The evidence for climate change is clear, and it is incumbent upon all of us to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Lance Collins, the Joseph Silbert Dean of Engineering. “The college understands the importance of being a good steward of the environment and how prudent it is for everyone to really ‘Think Big, Live Green.’ We are committed to building a better world, and to do that, we want to make Earth a greener place.”
