Bulldog Sustainability is featured in a new report by the Natural Resources Defense Council for its efforts to support sustainability at Yale. Collegiate Game Changers, produced by the NRDC in collaboration with the Green Sports Alliance and the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, documents for the first time the breadth of sustainability measures underway at collegiate sports departments all across the country.
It features 10 case studies of college sports programs employing more sustainable techniques to manage their energy, water, waste and purchasing. The findings provide a roadmap for sports departments, students and staff interested in adopting sustainability strategies. And the report documents the bottom-line benefits of greening and the role of sports in transforming sustainability measures on college campuses. It is a follow-up to NRDC’s influential 2012 report, Game Changer, which featured the leaders in professional sports greening.
