Energy conservation to benefit Haiti

Emory’s Office of Sustainability Initiatives is challenging faculty, students and staff once more to reduce their energy consumption in a campus-wide campaign from March 1-31. Campus Services will measure energy use in campus buildings, including academic, administration and residence halls.

Cost savings from reduced electricity use for the month, when compared to the same period last year, will be reallocated to a fund managed by Emory’s Global Health Institute to support two student research projects in Haiti that will improve access to chlorinated water and assess mental health needs.

An estimated 3 million people have been affected by Haiti’s massive earthquake Jan. 12.
