During the month of November, we challenge members of the Lehigh community to be conscious of their energy consumption behaviors, to commit to adopting new energy saving behaviors, and to engage with peers and coworkers on the topic of energy conservation. This challenge is designed to reduce university-wide energy consumption leading into the cold dark winter months when lighting and heating is heavily used.
This year different offices and clubs will be holding events throughout the month of November to promote energy conservation. Check below to see the calendar showcasing all the upcoming events for this month!
Lehigh University has taken steps to address energy consumption and the resulting environmental and social impacts through a series of public commitments and policies:
2009 Climate Commitment: Identifies eight key actions focused on measuring, monitoring and reducing energy consumption
Campus Sustainability Plan 2020: Energy & Climate section lays out short-term, intermediate, and long-term energy conservation goals
2014 Energy Policy: Describes individual actions, technical strategies and standards for managing and reducing energy consumption
