What Would You Do With $1 million? Green Revolving Fund Committee Accepting Ideas

Do you have a great idea that would help make Carleton a more sustainable campus?

For the third year, the Green Revolving Fund Committee is accepting applications from faculty, staff and students. The university’s $1-million Green Revolving Fund is part of its campus-wide Energy and Sustainability Program.

A Green Revolving Fund Committee (GRFC) will evaluate all submissions. The application should highlight the idea’s positive environmental impact and demonstrate a financial payback. Other criteria will also be considered.

Submissions are now being accepted. The deadline for applications is Nov. 28, 2015. All members of the Carleton community are encouraged to participate. The savings realized by the project(s) will be returned to the Green Revolving Fund to repay the initial investment.

For more information about the fund, and to view the project ideas and winning ideas from last year, please go to: http://www.carleton.ca/fmp/energy-and-sustainability/get-involved/green-revolving-fund/

The fund is managed by Carleton’s Financial Services Department and overseen by the committee.
