IBMC College is committed to acting consciously and strive to be more sustainable in all of our practices.
Our Green Team is made up of representatives from each campus. Eric Thompson, Greeley’s Campus President, acts as the Green Team Committee Chair.
Take a Look at the Ways We’ve Gone Green at Our Campuses!
- We have focused on raising awareness and becoming more eco-friendly.
- We have implemented quarterly initiatives to bring awareness to students and staff and faculty members. These efforts focus on green and environmentally conscious efforts.
- We have implemented strategies — such as reducing waste by re-using grocery bags, increasing recycling efforts, carpooling, and biking to work/school.
- We recycle printer cartridges.
- We recycle alkaline batteries at the Fort Collins campus.
- We shred and recycle tons of paper on an annual basis.
- We have implemented double-sided printing and increased the scanning of documents and electronic storage in an effort to decrease printing volumes.
- We have moved of our curriculum to CAPs and MyHub, our electronic databases, which have helped to eliminate hard copies of our curriculum.
