Lewis and Clark Community College in Godfrey continues to be recognized for its efforts to increase its green initiatives. It was recently recognized as a Gold Level Compact School within the Illinois Campus Sustainability Compact program. The gold level recognition is given to schools that have successfully engaged their campus community in sustainability initiatives, made a commitment to greening operations and continue to make measurable progress toward improvement.
LCCC Sustainability Coordinator Ted Kratschmer says they have accomplished much, but there is more work to do.
Notable initiatives include the purchase of 100 percent green energy across all the Lewis and Clark Community College District’s facilities, inclusion of sustainability in the college’s strategic plan and a continuing commitment to be a carbon-neutral campus by 2058.
