Antioch University New England Wins Green Business Award

A Letter To The Antioch Community From Abigail Abrash Walton... 

Dear Friends,

Our sustainability efforts are being recognized!  AUNE has won Business NH's Lean & Green 2010 Award for large companies.  We're featured in the August 2010 issue of Business NH, now on newstands, and we'll be honored at an event in Portsmouth on September 14.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this success (by turning off lights, switching to CFLs, powering down your office equipment, composting, recycling, etc.).  Those small individual actions all mount up to some significant hard numbers in terms of reducing our collective institutional carbon footprint -- and we're saving money doing it.

Stay tuned: our next initiative focuses on helping all of us who commute to campus to do so in less carbon-heavy ways (and, yes, there will be prizes involved).

All the best,

Abi
