Report Shows Schools' Environmental Progress
Cambridge Public Schools published its 2012 Sustainability Year-In-Review this summer, and celebrated several environmental successes. “I’m proud of the work we’ve accomplished together so far,” said Kristen von Hoffmann, the school district’s Sustainability Manager. “For me, it really boils down to the numbers. We’ve shown some great dollar savings and lowered energy use, but even so—I’m determined to improve those results.”
The report outlines the schools’ environmental progress and accomplishments in energy reduction, recycling, eco-friendly products and other green topics. The culmination of these projects comes under the umbrella of the “Cambridge Green Schools Initiative (CGSI)” a district-wide program started by von Hoffmann, who was hired in November 2010. The initiative organizes, implements and tracks Facilities projects in five environmental categories: Products, Food, Energy, Waste and Greenspace.
