Stanford recognized for Green Cleaning, information technology and campus engagement programs

Sustainable Stanford logoThis summer, the International Sustainable Campus Network (ISCN) honored Stanford’s My Cardinal Green program with a 2018 Sustainable Campus Excellence Award. Presented at this year’s ISCN conference in Stockholm, Sweden, the award recognized My Cardinal Green in the Campus Planning and Management Systems category for its efforts to motivate and quantify campus engagement in sustainability.

At the next stop in a busy conference season, the California Higher Education Sustainability Conference (CHESC) recognized Stanford with three best practice awards. Residential & Dining Enterprises (R&DE) received an award for its innovative Green Cleaning initiative, which uses a chemical-free ozone-based solution created by infusing cold tap water with electricity. The cleaning system is currently used in 32 campus residences.

The My Cardinal Green program was also recognized with an award at CHESC, as well as the Sustainable IT program, which offers virtualization and relocation options for energy-intensive servers that can consume up to 41 percent of a building’s electricity usage.
