- Improve our impact on the environment
- Increase environmental awareness
As a scientific community, we appreciate the findings of environmental scientists. The health of our future society depends on our current ability to work and live in a green and sustainable manner. We strive to reduce, reuse and recycle. We encourage energy saving habits like turning computers off at night and using revolving doors that minimize the cost of air-conditioning and heating. Where possible we utilize re-usable instead of disposable items, e-mail communications in place of printouts and recycle to conserve resources. Purchasing decisions are made with consideration of environmental impact including energy efficiency. By raising environmental awareness we hope that our sustainability efforts will increase the benefit of all of our efforts towards a brighter future. The members of the BMP department strive to offset the carbon emissions produced in connection with our seminar series through donations to sustainable energy initiatives.
All of our BMP sustainability initiatives coincide with campus wide green principles.
