The Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and Second Nature announced that Southern Oregon University (SOU) has won an Honorable Mention in the 2016 USGBC Climate Leadership Awards. SOU was a finalist in the competition last year. The new Honorable Mention award was given this year for the first time, and SOU and Huston-Tillotson University in Austin, TX were the recipients for four-year schools. Arizona State University was the top award winner in the category.
Southern Oregon University and two other state universities have sold more than $1 million dollars of carbon credits through the voluntary carbon offset market. The credits were produced through carbon-reducing activities and the funds will help finance and further carbon neutrality work on the campuses.
