Advancing Toward Carbon Neutrality
ASI meets our partner schools’ desire for maximum sustainability and the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) objectives through our carbon-offset program, Carbon Les. We estimate the annual volume of the carbon footprint created by the operation of the washers and dryers converted to tons of CO2. Funding will be designated to support a local carbon-offset project in the community whenever possible, or a national fund such as Earth Givers, Inc.
Objectives of our Carbon Les Program include:
- Creating a carbon-neutral laundry program at partner colleges and universities
- Contributing to a local, community-generated offset program or a national fund
- Providing the lowest possible water usage (when combined with ASI High-Efficiency washers) and carbon neutrality
- Providing promotional information and a certificate of “Carbon Neutrality” for the Residence Laundry program
With the continued efforts of ASI and our partner schools, we will have delivered the most efficient, Earth-friendly laundry program on the planet.
