Green Campus Program
We are a group of students who work to promote energy efficiency and environmental stewardship at Cal Poly. Working with our campus partners we find creative ways to conserve energy, save Cal Poly money, and protect the environment. Each year, we implement energy and water-saving projects and get students and staff involved. Check out our projects page to see all the great things we have done and what's on the way!
The Annual Conservation and Diversion Challenge (ACDC) is a competition in which five freshmen residence halls- Tenaya, Sequoia, Muir, Santa Lucia, and Trinity- compete to reduce their building's energy and water consumption over a two week period. Watch as the Red Brick Residents work to reduce thier energy and water use.
Help Make Cal Poly More Sustainable!
Join the Eco Reps as we work to make the Cal Poly campus and community more sustainable through outreach and education. Whether you are a new member or a veteran environmentalist, we'd love to see you at our weekly meetings!
Cal Poly continues to work to become a Zero Waste campus, meaning eventually none of the waste produced on campus will end up in a landfill. Efforts to promote recycling and composting across campus as well as encouraging the community to reduce and reuse is a major priority for the university.
