Santa Clara Receives 2014 Acterra Award for Sustainability

I am delighted to announce that Santa Clara University recently received the 2014 Acterra Award for Sustainability, one of the top awards for sustainability in Silicon Valley. We were selected out of a distinguished group of finalists including Google and SunPower Corporation. The award recognizes our innovative and ongoing efforts in sustainability and sets a high standard for other large organizations making a name for themselves in sustainability. I salute our Director of the Center for Sustainability Lindsey Kalkbrenner and her on-campus partners for their leadership. The non-profit organization Acterra has a 44-year history of environmental programming in and around Silicon Valley, and has honored Silicon Valley organizations with its Business Environmental Awards since 1990.
